Vancouver - Stanley Park

This is the first of a series of ‘trailers’ on Vancouver, with links to sites where you can find out more. 

The City of Vancouver is situated on a peninsula on the west coast of Canada, in the province of British Columbia. The main downtown area is surrounded on three sides by water, and has a long history as the largest port on the west coast. It is only 24 miles from the heart of Vancouver to the US border.

It’s a beautiful city, with breathtaking views of the coastline, the Coast Range of mountains, and Stanley Park, a 1000 acre managed (but not manicured) park with a seawall running around three sides, giving unlimited access to the beach and the West Coast temperate rainforest. The park also encompasses First Nations art, an aquarium, a miniature railway and lots of events throughout the year.
