斯坦利公园(Stanley Park)是温哥华最著名的公园,占地一千英亩,是北美最大的城市公园亦是世界最闻名的公园之一。1888年,公园正式开幕,以加拿大总督斯坦利爵士之名为其命名。
  这里有三个大沙滩、动物园、水族馆、小小高尔夫球场、玫瑰花园、小型火车及数之不尽巨型圆腾柱。   
  公园的入口有一座昔日总督斯坦利的铜像,这里还有一个由全温哥华城的小孩集体捐出糖果而建成的维多利亚女皇喷泉。站在公园的山坡上,你还可以眺望到太平洋上的“狮门铁桥”(Lions Gate Bridge),以及海面上大大小小扬帆出海的渔船,景色美丽动人。公园内林间跳跃的松鼠、湖上悠游的天鹅、不知名的鸟叫声交织成独一无二的自然交响乐章。


Stanley Park is a 405-hectare (1,001-acre) public park that borders the downtown of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada and is almost entirely surrounded by waters of Vancouver Harbour and English Bay.

The park has a long history and was one of the first areas to be explored in the city. The land was originally used by indigenous peoples for thousands of years before British Columbia was colonized by the British during the 1858 Fraser Canyon Gold Rush. For many years after colonization, the future park with its abundant resources would also be home to nonaboriginal settlers. The land was later turned into Vancouver's first park when the city incorporated in 1886. It was named after Lord Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby, a British politician who had recently been appointed governor general.

Unlike other large urban parks, Stanley Park is not the creation of a landscape architect, but rather the evolution of a forest and urban space over many years. Most of the manmade structures we see today were built between 1911 and 1937 under the influence of then superintendent W.S. Rawlings. Additional attractions, such as a polar bear exhibit, aquarium, and miniature train, were added in the post-war period.

Much of the park remains as densely forested as it was in the late 1800s, with about a half million trees, some of which stand as tall as 76 metres (249 ft) and are up to hundreds of years old. Thousands of trees were lost (and many replanted) after three major windstorms that took place in the past 100 years, the last in 2006.

Significant effort was put into constructing the near-century-old Vancouver Seawall, which can draw thousands of residents and visitors to the park every day. The park also features forest trails, beaches, lakes, children's play areas, and the Vancouver Aquarium, among many other attractions.

On June 18, 2014 Stanley Park was named ‘top park in the entire world’ by TripAdvisor.
