Walk, cycle, jog, or roller blade around the Vancouver seawall for beautiful water and city views. Expect to spend a few hours walking the Stanley Park portion of the seawall (especially if you stop to take photos).
If you can’t make it the whole way around the Seawall, there are plenty of places to exit, including an outdoor pool, a children’s water park, and various local attractions.
In the other direction (the Science World seawall loop), there are more parks, playgrounds, restaurants, and places to sit overlooking the water.
You can take the Seawall to the Burrard Bridge, walk or cycle over the bridge for some great views, and explore the beautiful neighbourhood of Kitsilano on the other side where you’ll find more beaches, parks, and great places to eat.
Or pop down from the seawall to one of several ferry docks from which little boats will take you to the Maritime Museum or Granville Island for a small fee. If you prefer a guided tour, there are small ferry tours and sightseeing mini-cruises of varying lengths.
