A fun visit to the aquarium included a training demonstration with Helen's trainer. The seven African penguins are adorable. There are nice habitats for the animals and a message throughout highlighting reduction in the usage of plastics.

Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up
close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy
expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views,
beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical
getaway spot for friends and families, especially as
it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its
best equestrian outlets.
