Stroll along Stanley Park’s glistening shoreline and walk beneath its towering trees as students hear the inside story of one of the world's most remarkable parks. They’ll discover the famous seawall, dark forested trails, secret cemeteries, the Lions Gate Bridge, historic totem poles, bizarre public art, notorious crime scenes, and the secret of Deadman’s Island. Students will learn about the First Nations who have lived in what would become Stanley Park for 3,000 years, and how these communities were affected by the creation of the park in 1888.
