Stanley Park, Vancouver: 165 reviews and 301 photos

  Nine O'Clock Gun

There were quite a few historic landmarks that we stopped and had a look at as we wound our way around Stanley park.

Some were the NINE O'CLOCK GUN, a Gun, which is an old English Sea Cannon that was fired to remind fishermen of fishing time limits. It is now fired every evening at 9pm as a time signal and a tradition.

?THE GIRL IN THE WETSUIT? I wonder if this is Vancouver's answer to Copenhagen's Little Mermaid?

WAR MEMORIALS, remembering the fallen ......

and even ROBERT BURNS.....the Scottish poet.

The website has a good map of Stanley park and where everything is located.
