Stanley Park is almost 1000 acres of pristine wilderness with half a million trees including giants hundreds of years old, overlooked by snow-capped mountains, framed by water on every side, and packed with wildlife. It’s the city of Vancouver’s greatest treasure.

But there’s more to this park than incredible scenery. It’s also been home to crime, persecution, riots, political intrigue, class warfare, hunting, logging, disease, military installations, remarkable public art, poetry, secret construction mega-projects, ecological catastrophes, scandal, and murder.
