Stanley Park was an attraction for more than just the hollow tree; wild animals still lived there since the park first opened in 1888.
Did you know? The peninsula which was to become Stanley Park was designated as a military reserve in the early 1860s. Although the area was logged by six different companies between the 1860s and 1880s, this military designation saved the land from development. In 1886, Vancouver’s City Council voted to petition the Dominion government to lease the reserve for use as a park. On September 27, 1888, the park was officially opened and named after Lord Stanley, Governor General of Canada at the time.
