During the cold, wet winter months, most family activities tend to be limited to indoor pursuits but on those rare occasions when the sun finally pops out, it’s time to capitalize on the weather: why not pack up the kids and embark on a fun-filled bike ride to enjoy the scenic vistas along English Bay and Stanley Park!
At Lord Stanley Suites on the Park, wake up to a freshly brewed cup of java while you admire a magnificent sweeping vista of nature’s playground outside your window, where Stanley Park is situated right next door; replete with a glorious view of the snow capped North Shore mountains as well as picture postcard perfect Coal Harbour.
Whether it’s the Orient Express or Thomas the Tank, trains and train travel have long been publicized in numerous songs, films and books that young and old are infinitely familiar with; here in Vancouver, the Stanley Park train is a local institution.
Ask any local what’s the #1 must-do summer activity at or near Stanley Park and you’d probably get a unanimous response: go for a stroll or cycle! Recently rated the #1 urban park in the world by Trip Advisor with some of the most scenic bike trails bar none, it is suitable not only for cycling, but also running, walking, in-line skating and stroller pushing, too. Step outside the doors of the hotel with JP, Lord Stanley Suite’s handyman extraordinaire for a scenic little ride!
