Vancouver’s False Creek Seawall

False Creek by David Lam Park

The False Creek Seawall is a world-class walking and cycling path connecting English Bay with Science World, Granville Island and Kitsilano Beach.

Looking for an exceptional place to walk (or jog or cycle or roller blade or just sit and watch the people go by)? Then check out False Creek and its seawall. On the north side, you can walk anywhere from English Bay to Science World, and on the south side anywhere from Science World and the Olympic Village to Granville Island to Kitsilano Beach.

Both sides of False Creek are amazing, but if we had a preference it might be the south side because of its views of the city. There is a stretch just past the Olympic Village that isn’t so special (as the scenery there is mostly just concrete parking lots and wasted space), but except for that little bit, the entire seawall is a first class route for exercising, being outdoors and admiring the beautiful city.

Note: There are cobblestones and bumpy sections in some areas on the south side of the False Creek seawall, so those sections aren’t good for rollerblading (so you might just want to walk those parts).

The seawall from English Bay to Granville Island is without a doubt one of the best places in Vancouver for walks, jogging and leisurely bike rides. The False Creek Seawall also connects with the equally stunning seawalls around Stanley Park and Coal Harbour.
