Vancouver’s False Creek

Marking the border of downtown Vancouver to the south, False Creek is the body of water going from English Bay up to Science World.

The False Creek Region

Sites of interest located along False Creek include Granville Island, the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, the Museum of Vancouver and Vanier Park (home of the Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival in the summer).

False Creek is also where you’ll find the Edgewater Casino, Yaletown, the Olympic Athletes Village and the False Creek seawall (that you can walk, jog and cycle along from one end of the waterfront to the other).

Both the north and south sides of False Creek are amazing places to stroll along. Conveniently (and lots of fun), little mini Harbour ferries go up and down the waterway, dropping passengers off at most of the tourist sites.

False Creek Bridges

Three bridges cross the False Creek waterfront – the Cambie Street Bridge, Burrard Street Bridge and Granville Street Bridge. If you get the chance, go for a stroll over any one of them. On a clear day the scenery is spectacular.
