Autumn Splendor in Stanley Park

Fall is definitely the most spectacular of all seasons in Vancouver’s Stanley Park: pleasantly sunny afternoons with a decidedly crisp nip in the air, crimson and orange leaves festooning the trees and scattered on the ground make for a breathtakingly beautiful backdrop for visitors to the park.

What better way to enjoy autumn in all it’s glory than to take a leisurely stroll around the SeaWall with spectacular views of Coal Harbor from the Vancouver Rowing Club, to discover a quiet alcove with wooden park benches that look out on Lost Lagoon with Jubilee Fountain  in the center (which is bedecked with red and green lights for Christmas)  and perhaps to stumble upon none other than a larger than life statue of Robbie Burns overlooking the park and downtown Vancouver: all minutes away from Lord Stanley Suites on the Park. And if you look really carefully, you might just spy a delightful bronze statue of a lady perched on a park bench rummaging through her handbag in Devonian Harbour Park: these are some of the gems to be discovered in Stanley Park. So grab a warm jacket, a pair of woolly gloves (and the requisite umbrella just in case!) and once you head down the street, walk through the pedestrian underpass to discover a world renowned urban oasis right at our doorstep!
