This enormous urban park is Vancouver's green
jewel, highly popular with locals and visitors alike. You can walk, jog,
bike, rollerblade, tan on a beach, sit and watch the nature, passing
boats, or the seaplanes, visit Vancouver Aquarium, have a meal in a
restaurant, and do many other things. It's a busy place any time of the
year, but, especially, during the tourist season. If, on top of that,
it's a weekend, and the sun is out, you are bound to see some serious
crowds in Stanley Park. Fortunately, it's big enough that even on a
busiest day it's often possible to find a relatively quiet and secluded
place, usually on one of the many paths in the forest.
21. The end of the path leads
onto a small bridge with four small lion statues.
