Stanley park 125 years From Trails to Roads to Trails. Roads now for Cyclists and horses - POLICE

Making Stanley Park car free has been a “tremendous success” in transforming people’s experience of the park, according to the general manager of the Vancouver Park Board.
Malcolm Bromley said Tuesday that the board is learning from its move to limit the seawall to people on foot, move cyclists onto Stanley Park Drive, and ban cars in the park. The change came into effect on April 8.  - Vancouver Sun  Covid-19 speeds up change of access to park

Auto traffic is prohibited between 2:00pm to 5:00pm daily due to concerns of the vehicles frightening horses which "might take flight."  A court decision says that the Park Board has no power to regulate auto traffic in Stanley Park.

The next step will be shutting down one lane, on the three lane bridge for cyclists, and the sidewalks reserved for Pedestrians instead of having to share the narrow space with cyclists.
