1. Deepen your appreciation of Stanley Park
We all know and love Stanley Park, but few of us know its history. Though Stanley Park was founded in 1888, the Skwxu7mesh Uxwumixw (Coast Salish peoples) have connections to this land that spans thousands of years. Expand your understanding of local ecology and Indigenous culture with a Talking Trees Tour of Stanley Park, a two-hour walking tour with Indigenous-owned Talaysay Tours. You’ll come away with a new perspective of both Stanley Park and the temperate rainforest.
To cover more ground, rent an e-bike from Cycle City Tours and join their three-hour Stanley Park Tour where frequent stops for storytelling are combined with trail riding and seawall cruising. Or be a part of a 133-year-old Vancouver tradition with a Stanley Park Horse-Drawn Tour. You’ll learn Vancouver history and see the park’s most-popular landmarks on this 45-minute narrated journey.
