Stanley Park is also an especially amazing place to visit for families. It’s a stunning and relaxing place to swim in the ocean or in one of the oceanside swimming pools. The kids will be able to burn some excess energy on the playground, enjoy a tasty concession snack, or just spend the whole day frolicking at the Variety Kids Waterpark. The waterpark is conveniently located near the Vancouver Aquarium, which prides itself on its magnificent walruses and seahorses.
Finally, as a family it is a big treat to explore Vancouver by the world’s largest uninterrupted waterfront pathway, culminating in the Stanley Park Seawall. It is the crowning jewel of Vancouver, stretching more than 8 kilometers (5 miles) around the park — and 22 kilometers (14 miles) from the Vancouver Convention Centre to Kitsilano Beach Park and beyond. It’s the most popular and • the richest way to explore Vancouver as a family.
