Lord Stanley Statue in Stanley Park

Lord Stanley Statue in Stanley Park, Vancouver, B.C., Canada

The Lord Stanley statue shows Lord Stanley of Preston welcoming people to Stanley Park with open arms.  He officially opened the park on October 29, 1889, but it was many years until this statue was made.  The statue was unveiled on May 19, 1960 by Governor General Georges Vanier after about 10 years of fund-raising.

During the 2011 National Hockey League playoffs this statue was decorated with a Vancouver Canucks sweater and held a replica of the Stanley Cup, named after Lord Stanley himself!
