Walk through Stanley Park and over the Lions Gate Bridge

Well, I can't make it on Sunday, and I'm really, really wanting to get out and enjoy this sunshine before it goes away, so I'm planning a walk for Saturday.

So, it seems that Stanley Park is a nice idea (thanks Connie).  Let's start out at the Skytrain station and walk along the Seawall into the park.  Then I suggest we walk across the park a bit and over the Lion's Gate Bridge to Park Royal.

The URL for this route is http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6189653

Notes:

• It's about a 10km walk and will take us about 3 hours.

• There will be washroom stops.

• The pace will be moderate (w/ time for some photos).

• Dogs OK on leash only.

• Kids OK if supervised.

• We will wait 15 minutes for latecomers.

• There will be some uphill bits getting up to the bridge, but they will be gradual.

      Ha ha... Well I took your advice to take transit... Which came too late. So I took a limo, went around Stanley Park & Lions Gate, couldn't find the group cause of the fog...! Btw you owe me $243 for the limo... & $50/month for the dog on a lease...! ~~~ Beautiful pictures... See you on another walk soon :~}

    It was a great walk on a spectacular day. After stopping for a hearty lunch, five of us continued on to Lonsdale Quay. According to gmap-pedometer, we walked 7.7 km on the Park Royal to Lonsdale Quay section.
