Autumn in Stanley Park

The fall in Vancouver can be quite mild, and these past few days have been perfect for brisk walks along the seawall and through Stanley Park. The winter rains are coming now, but on a clear day, these paths that the City of Vancouver Parks have outlined can be followed directly from the Coal Harbour recreational paths. Here’s part of the city’s map that shows its relation to the Coal Harbour area.Coal Harbour and Stanley ParkTo view or print out the full map, go here to the City of Vancouver Parks site. You can find a lot more info on Stanley Park there as well.
