Great area to wander around, since there's a path around the water. You can grab the False Creek ferries from here and pop around the waterfront area. I just walked all the way from here to the ferry stop across from Granville Island, and you...More

I was able to just sit by the side of False Creek and watch the False Creek ferries go by, listen to the seagulls, and chat with passerbys and I was satisfied after my coast to coast journey aboard the Via Rail. The breeze was...More

This creek is the size of a river. There are so many parks along the banks. Dan park has playgrounds and basketball courts. Yaletown shopping and restaurants are nearby. That section of the creek has paved bike lanes and trails and a wash room. Further...More

The seawall in Vancouver is a must do - walkers are right along the sea and bikes, skaters, etc. are clearly separated from pedestrians so there is no dodging, etc. We walked from the Davie Street entrance to Stanley Park - beautiful the entire way....More

Vancouver is full of stunning gorgeous views -- and False Creek is no exception! I highly recommend taking a morning jaunt to take in the sights, and maybe even pick up a coffee along the way!

Beautiful view of the downtown, quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. You can walk / bike or just chill on a bench. We spent half a day there and enjoyed every moment.

Vancouver has amazing public spaces, right in the middle of everything. With False Creek, there are separate running/walking and cycling paved paths along the water, connecting numerous attractions. On an August weekday morning, there were plenty of people out for a morning jog, plus commenters...More

There is plenty to see and do - from Stanley Park to Granville Island. Well marked cycle path which we enjoyed; but options including walking or on the water. Well worth a wander - at least in part if not both sides of the ‘creek’.

Great seawall walk - from English Bay to Granville Island will take you around a lot of False Creek, along the seawall - will take about two hours and then you are at Granville Island to pick up dinner, or stop for a snack.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
