  • Vancouver Celebrates 125th Anniversary of Stanley Park

    Residents and tourists in Vancouver, British Columbia, celebrated the 125th anniversary of scenic Stanley Park on the weekend of August 24-25, 2013. Officially opened on September 27, 1888, Stanley Park is located along the shores of English Bay on a peninsula in the northern section of Vancouver and was named for Lord Frederick Stanley, the sixth Governor General of Canada (for whom the National Hockey League’s “Stanley Cup” championship trophy was also named). Covering an area of 1,001 acres, Stanley Park is one of the largest city parks in North America. This “urban oasis” attracts approximately 8,000,000 visitors annually and is famous for its beautiful beaches and spectacular ocean views; colorful gardens; diverse forests; Lost Lagoon; having the largest aquarium in Canada; its First Nations totem poles; and historic Nine O’Clock Gun (a naval cannon which has been fired each night at 9:00PM since 1898).


    Vancouver, British Columbia, is a favorite destination for tourists and people who immigrate to Canada, giving this incredible city a truly cosmopolitan character.
