Summer time in Vancouver, Canada means lazy days spent in Stanley Park, North America's third largest public park.
Inaugurated in 1888 and named after Lord Frederick Stanley, Governor General of Canada, the iconic 400-acre island is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, directly accessed from Vancouver's downtown.
Visitors to this verdant oasis offers can revel in scenic views, flaura and fauna along Stanley Park's famous Seawall. The park is not only a natural oasis, but also includes man-made attractions including public pools, golf courses, playgrounds and even dining locations. This is truly a "green" island of leisure in a city that aims to be the greenest on the globe by 2020.
