Vancouver’s Stanley Park is the largest urban park in Canada and is enjoyed by more than eight million people each year.

In The Stanley Park Companion Paul Grant and Laurie Dickson have combined social and natural history—memorabilia, photographs, illustrations, maps, drawings, anecdotes and remembrances—to reveal the many surprises tourists and hometown visitors can find in this thousand-acre sanctuary. From Easter Be-ins and Theatre Under the Stars to poet Pauline Johnson and lifeguard Joe Fortes, from wild wolves and miniature train rides to Skana the Killer Whale and the totem poles (which are the park’s most visited spot), it’s all here in this lively, sometimes quirky compendium of the world-famous park that has been the green heart of Vancouver for over 100 years.
