The Totem Poles at Stanley Park

Stanley Park is sort of like Vancouver's version of New York's Central Park.

Ok, it's nothing like Central Park. The only similarity is its proximity to the city.

The totem poles here are the most visited tourist attraction in British Columbia.

One of these things is not like the others.

This adorable pup looked at Mr. Monkey with great interest.

Soooooooooo cute.

Stanley Park has everything -- totem poles, the aquarium, a farmyard, miniature trains, lagoons, beaches, forest, a huge hollow tree, a salmon demonstration stream, lawn bowling, a yacht club, a rowing club, putting greens, and trails galore.

A visit to Vancouver is not complete without Stanley Park.


  1. those are neat. how old are they? the colors seem really vibrant.

  2. I think I could seriously live in Stanley Park. But the totems here and in Victoria were some of my favorite aspects of BC.

  3. The totems were carved from the 1920s through as recently as 2009.

    The colors may be vibrant because of my overzealous editing. LOL.

  4. Aww, I forgot about the totem poles up there!

  5. Cool totem poles! Who carved them?

  6. That may be the cutest puppy I've ever seen!

  7. That dog looks kind of like a bear. The biking around Stanley Park was fantastic.

  8. i want that PUPPY!

    there is a picture of me as a wee one in a furry coat by those totem poles at my mom's house somewhere...

  9. i want to grab that puppy and give him the biggest hug ever.
