Featuring an 8,000-square-foot ice skating pond, light walk, Santa’s workshop, and the usual ski resort for your ski sports. It’s a winter experience like the ones in the movies.

Bright Nights at Stanley Park

Stanley Park lights up at night with millions of twinkling Christmas lights and surrounded with holiday music and cheers.
