Stanley Park is a spectacular 40 hectare park in downtown Vancouver. It is Canada's largest park and one of British Columbia's top attractions. It is to us Vancouverites what Central Park is to New Yorkers. You may have heard that Stanley Park has recently been hit by violent winter storms, with over 3,000 trees being toppled and parts of the world-famous seawall getting shut down (I saw this morning that news reports have hit France media even!). As devastating as the storms have been, there is still so much beauty within the park, and many reasons to visit. Much of the seawall is still open, as it many of the park's attractions, including the incomparable Vancouver Aquarium
, and great restaurants like the Sequoia Grill
. You should still set aside an afternoon to visit the park while in Vancouver. British Columbia Magazine
is launching a special issue of the magazine, Stanley Park - After the Storm
, to celebrate the park's timeless beauty and capture this point in the park's history. Stanley Park - After the Storm
makes a great memento of a visit to B.C. and helps contribute to the park's restoration.
