False Creek seawall walk-about
aug. 2021
No trip to Vancouver is complete without visiting the sea wall path and taking the full walk through the parks and taking in the beauty of nature. The sculptures along the way and the energy of the parks' activities always are strong draws for us.

The 25' high seawall construction was part of the obligation (read that to be "requirement for construction") assumed by the Hong Kong developer who bought the old Expo 68 site (it would soon morph into the mega-metropolis of high rises that define the new Yaletown). There is no shortage of interesting people and their pets making the promenade down the path. It is all part of the local color and flavor!

Probably the most memorable landmark (for us) is the huge mosquito-looking creation standing in the water just off the David Lam park. It has a name: Buster Simpson's Brush with Illumination. It responds to tide movements, wind and water, and is a beautiful and impressive example of art merged with environmental science. But it still looks like a giant mosquito to my uneducated eye.

False Creek sea wall is a launching point for ferries to Granville Island. Both the Aquabus and the False Creek Ferry will pick passengers up from the dock for explorations around False Creek. Both of the lines have different routes and price tickets accordingly. False Creek Ferry does offer a $14 CAD senior citizen all-day fare with unlimited use.

The sea wall path makes its way up to, and ends at, a defunct casino (Edgewater) in what is left of the Plaza of Nations. Built as a temporary structure for the 1986 Expo, the casino was deemed unsafe in 2006 and will be torn down in the future (if Mother Nature doesn't beat the wrecking ball to the punch). The casino has relocated across the concrete to BC stadium with a new and improved look and name: Parq Casino Hotel Resort (just in case the call of the dice beckon to you).

One of our favorite juxtapositions is seeing the large crystal chandelier hanging from the underside of a steel girder bridge. It can be seen along the sea wall walk. That is so exceptionally impressive: a touch of glam in a very unexpected place!

These various artistic installations pop up in such an unexpected places and always cause us to stop and linger a bit, pondering the artist's intent and purpose. Art is always thought provoking. Our brain cells enjoy the exercise!

A MUST for Out-Of-Towners
jul. 2021
This whole area was industrial for about one hundred years. Over the past fifty or so, the creekside has morphed into a pleasant neighbourhood to stroll, particularly the north side. The jewel in the crown is the sea wall, which has segregated paths for cyclists and pedestrians. Many great viewpoints along the way, so plan to stop, marvel, and photo. And if you are my age, note the various washrooms along the way.
Lots of places to snack or get a refreshment. And, enough of the old industrial uses remain (don't miss locomotive 374!) to show what once was. Next to Stanley Park and Burrard Inlet, this is a must do.

Look over the beautiful Pacific Ocean and admire the tall mountain range in the distance. Stroll down and admire beautiful sunsets smothering the downtown area.

False Creek
okt. 2020
Il pleuvait beaucoup, mais nous avons décidé de faire le tour à pied, quand même.
Nous avons marché du marché public jusqu'à Science World, ensuite le stade BC, Chinatown et retour eu centre-ville.
Cela a été plaisant comme promenade, malgré la météo.

agradable vista

Una agradable vista acuática entre costas urbanizadas, por donde pasan barquichuelos y piraguas, que se pueden fotografiar mejor desde alguno de los puentes.

We took the Barbeque boat cruising around false creek for 2 hr. and really enjoyed the views and little coves. Great way to see the shoreline buildings.

Much More Than a Pleasant Stroll
jul. 2020
The review below, by "Pookie Cake" gives a comprehensive and accurate history of the name derivation and some previous uses. So, rather than plagiarize what she(?) said, I would encourage you to read hers; and I'll focus on more current issues.
Tourists should DEFINITELY include this area in their plans. Easily accessible by public transit, a person can walk, cycle or wheel chair the segregated pathway around the north side quite easily (I'm not that familiar with the south side) starting in the Yaletown neighbourhood.
Stop to marvel at the natural beauty, but also consider the work of town planners (and many other visionaries) who redeveloped this area from heavy industrial in the space of two generations. Some evidence remains, such as the roundhouse (who knew this was once a railway yard?) and the still operating cement plant on Granville Island.
See various photographs and look for infoplaques along the way.
If you walk west, you can continue to Stanley Park!
