Stanley Park and Trout Lake among B.C. parks added to Google Maps Street View
Outdoor enthusiasts will now be able to see where they’re going before they get there. Google Maps updated its Street View function today (October 11) by adding more than 400,000 kilometres of roads and trails to its online map. Included in the update are a number of Canadian parks, university campuses, golf courses, and museums.
In Vancouver, 15 landmarks have been added to Google Maps, including the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame, the Museum of Anthropology, and UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium. Parks that can be explored using Street View include Stanley Park, Trout Lake, Queen Elizabeth Park, Heather Park, the UBC Botanical Garden, and parks along False Creek and Coal Harbour.
Outside of Vancouver, Google Map users can explore the Ray Peters Trail in Squamish and the Sooke Trail on Vancouver Island, the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Richmond’s Minoru Park, Tofino’s Wickaninnish Inn, and Vernon’s Predator Ridge Resort.
