The Secrets of Stanley Park

Stanley Park. It’s almost 1,000 acres of pristine wilderness. Half a million trees including giants hundreds of years old. Eagles soar overhead while salmon, seals and even the occasional whale swim in the surrounding waters. It’s the city of Vancouver’s greatest treasure.

But there’s more to this park than incredible scenery. It’s also been home to crime, riots, persecution, political intrigue, class warfare, logging, hunting, disease, military installations, remarkable public art, ecological catastrophes, secret construction mega-projects, poetry, scandal, and murder.

So discover the Secrets of Stanley Park this fall with Forbidden Vancouver –– 2.5 hours roaming the trails, seawall, sights and sounds of one of the world’s great urban retreats. And what better time of year to visit the park? A crisp air, a bed of leaves underfoot, and snow capped mountains in the distance – the park at its most beautiful!
