Stanley Park – Vancouver, Canada

Larger than New York’s Central Park, Stanley Park is just a short distance from downtown Vancouver.

We walked from our hotel near Gastown along the waterfront park to Stanley Park.

It was a pretty warm day so by the time we got to the park, we had already done a fair amount of walking. We decided to get the horse drawn carriage ride which takes you on an hour long narrated trip around some of the prettiest parts of the park.

It was pretty expensive at $CAD33 each but a very pleasant way of seeing the park and saving the tired legs.  It takes you past a number of very pretty parts of the park and is narrated so you get some information about what you are seeing and the park history as you go.
