The Story

From the special fun of Sylvia Hotel, to water fun with rowboats, to adventures with Police horses, being in and around Stanley Park was a place to make memories and inspire future careers.

“The policemen were on police horses, and when we were very little and we’d be down there on our own … they’d just pull us up on the horses and ride us around once in a while, around Lost Lagoon”
