Vancouver police are investigating the discovery of a man's body in Stanley Park late Thursday.

"Shortly after 5:30 p.m. [PT] a man walking along a trail on the north side of Lost Lagoon found a deceased man and called police," Const. Jana McGuinness said in a release.

The area had been cordoned off and the coroner was attending, but foul play was not suspected, McGuinness said.

The approximate age of the deceased was not released.
