Stanley Park voted second most beautiful city park in the world

Coming in second isn’t bad.

Vancouver’s Stanley Park has been named the second most beautiful city park in the world by Travel + Leisure Magazine.

“The most beautiful combine meadows, woodlands, ponds, lakes, and streams with museums and other man-made attractions,” according to the criteria.

Coming in at number one is Park Guell in Barcelona.

But Vancouver’s own Stanley Park is number two. “The temperate rainforest of Stanley Park is almost completely surrounded by water, with both gorgeous skyline views and wild forest of 500,000 cedar, fir, and hemlock trees. It connects to the historic waterfront and downtown via a 5.5-mile portion of seawall that surrounds the park, popular with joggers, strollers, and cyclists. Rose and rhododendron gardens, nine intricately carved First Nations totem poles, a small golf course, an outdoor summer theater, a seaside swimming pool, and areas for lawn bowling round out its charms,” says the article.
