Stanley Park is 1,000 acres of thick timberland, gardens, and waterfront, just west of downtown. Like New York’s Central Park, there are scenic drives and several restaurants in picturesque spots, and it’s home to the Vancouver Aquarium, Canada’s largest, offering shows, exhibits, and animal encounter programs (http://www.vanaqua.org). Bicycle rentals are popular, especially for the 5.5 mi. (8.8 km) ride around the sea wall. Spokes Bicycle Rental is near the park entrance, at 1798 Georgia St. West 604-688-5141. Granville Island is a converted industrial zone south of downtown. It houses the city’s wonderful Public Market, “Kids Market,” restaurants, galleries, theaters, art studios, and a college of art and design. The goods offered for sale, edible or not, are mouth watering (http://www.granvilleisland.com). A bit farther afield, south and west of downtown, the University of British Columbia area includes woodlands, a fine botanical garden, Japanese gardens, Totem Park, and the Museum of Anthropology.
Vancouverites eat very well! Seafood, of course, is first-rate, from fish and chips to sushi. If you see a Japadog cart, queue up for Japanese-garnished hot dogs. On Granville Island, Go Fish is a casual shack serving great fish sandwiches and fish and chips, the Public Market is a gourmet feast, and The Sandbar is a satisfying seafood restaurant. Near Canada Place, TAPshack (formerly Mill Marine Bistro) in Harbour Green Park has a gorgeous view, but we haven't sampled the food.
