The Vancouver Aquarium is pleased to provide a smoke free work environment effective September 1, 2010.   In support of the city’s goal to become the "Greenest City", Vancouver’s by-law prohibits smoking in all areas of Stanley Park including beaches, golf courses, playgrounds, sports fields, trails, seawall, business and attractions, and parking lots that are within the boundaries of a park.
