• LOCATION 1 | Cycling the Stanley Park Seawall

    Welcome to Stanley Park SeaWall

    Welcome to Stanley Park - The Great Big and Beautiful Urban Oasis in downtown Vancouver.

    You should be in the parking lot near the Stanley Park Information booth and the Horse Drawn Tours Kios.

    My name is Gillian. I was born and raised in British Columbia, as were my parents. Every summer growing up we biked the Stanley Park Seawall, and now I am delighted to share this experience with you.

    In this tour we will follow the Seawall as it hugs the ocean, in a loop around the 1000 acre park.

    Cycling the Seawall is the best way to explore Stanley Park.

    The Seawall in its entirety extends farther than Stanley Park for a total distance of 28 kilometers, making it the longest uninterrupted coastline path in the world.

    But before we begin, let us go over some safety rules and laws.

    The Seawall is divided into two parallel tracks, one for pedestrians, and a narrower inside path for cyclists and rollerbladers.

    The Bike Route is one-way in a counterclockwise direction.

    Stay to the right, except to pass.

    Bike Helmets are the law in British Columbia.

    Now, enough talking, let’s get riding?

    To join the seawall walk or ride your bicycle to the water and turn left onto the path. If you're facing the water, the city of Vancouver is directly across from you.

    While you cycle, I'll briefly explain how VoiceMap works.

    It uses your location to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. This means that you can put your phone away now. Don't worry if I'm silent for a while, when I'm not giving directions or telling stories. There's a map on your screen if you ever feel lost, and if you do get way off track without noticing, VoiceMap will let you know.

    You'll hear from me a little further ahead.
