LOCATION 26 | Cycling the Stanley Park Seawall
End of Tour - Towards Vancouver Rowing Club
Get onto the path that leads you along the water's edge, back towards the Vancouver Rowing Club and where we began the tour.
Slightly north of us, to the left, is the entrance to Stanley Park.
You may have seen the monument of Frederick Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby welcoming "people of all colours and creeds and customs for all time" to the park. Lord Stanley was the 6th Governor General of Canada. He is also remembered for the Stanley Cup bearing his name. While living in Canada, he and his wife became avid Hockey fans. In 1892 Lord Stanley donated a trophy cup to be contested by amateur hockey clubs. In 1926 teams of the National Hockey League started competing for the famous cup.
We have now come full circle just past the Vancouver Rowing Club.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of the iconic Stanley Park, a must see for all tourists to Vancouver. If you enjoyed this tour, I recommend completing the rest of the seawall. It passes by; English Bay, Yaletown, Science World, the Olympic Village, Granville Island, the Planetarium, the Maritime Museum, the beaches of Kitsilano and Spanish Banks, ending at Point Grey.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could take a moment to rate the tour.
Thank you for joining me on the scenic and history seawall tour around picturesque Stanley Park.
