A Merry Horse Carriage Ride through Vancouver’s Stanley Park

A Merry Horse Carriage Ride through Stanley Park

Stanley Park is home to the wonderfully upkept Rose Garden which has 50 rose species meticulously cared for by park gardeners and to the Vancouver Aquarium, a non-profit institution with 7000 species of marine animals dedicated to conservation, rehabilitation and research. During the summer time, the well-cared-for horses gallivant about with a carriage of foreign visitors touring around the beautiful Stanley Park Seawall which took 60 years to build, from 1929-1990 with stops at each of the attractions aforementioned. It’s a delight for kids, families and seniors alike. Did you know Stanley Park is the largest civic park in all of North America, and about 10% larger in land area compared to New York City’s Central Park?
