Description: View from dock looking towards an ivy-covered building at Stanley Park. Captain George Vancouver first explored the peninsula area where this park is located in 1792. At the time, it was largely inhabited by the Squamish people. In the 1860's, the area was used as a military reserve before being designated as a park in 1886 by the Dominion of Canada. The park was named after Lord Stanley, Governor General of Canada. Today the park covers over 1,000 acres, and is the third largest city-owned park in North America.
