Ideally situated on a peninsula at the northwestern edge of downtown Vancouver, Stanley Park is one of the Vancouver's main tourist destinations, attracting approximately 8 million visitors each year. Featuring lovely beaches, miles of well-maintained paved and dirt trails, Canada's largest aquarium and an array of can't-miss kid-friendly spots (including a pool, water park, miniature railway and more), this 400-hectare (1,000-acre) haven is recognized as one of the greatest urban parks in the world.
For the first time, Stanley Park will play host to In Goop Health, a wellness conference hosted by Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop lifestyle brand. Taking place on October 27, 2018, In Goop Health attendees can expect a unique and intimate health experience hosted by Elise Loehnen, Goop's chief content officer.
Tickets include talks from Goop doctors, rising thinkers, and experts on topics ranging from coping with anxiety to decoding gut health; three wellness workshops for your spirit, body, and beauty from pros in those fields; breakfast, lunch, snacks, and cocktails in the stunning Stanley Park Pavilion; access to the clean beauty and wellness shop; and goop swag.
After the conference, guests can explore Vancouver's downtown core, ideally situated just minutes away from the world-famous urban park. Home to health and wellness brands such as Lululemon, Arc'teryx, and Saje, and award-winning chefs who emphasize locally sourced ingredients and OceanWise certified seafood, there's no shortage of things to do. Want to make a trip of it? Hotels close to the park like Rosellen Suites at Stanley Park and the Westin Bayshore hold a 4 Green Key Eco-Rating for the eco-conscious traveller.
