A wonderful urban park

Stanley Park, at the edge of central Vancouver, is a venerable space, designated in the late 1800's on space that was home to First Nations people. (There were still people living in the park through the 1950's, I think I'm remembering right, but the park lands now include second-growth temperate rain forest, gardens, and a spectacular perimeter seawall around the entire peninsula).

We walked around the seawall a couple of days ago, but returned to visit some of the interior trails. A destination amid the wonderful forest was Beaver Lake.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
