Great Scenery

Great scenery of the West Vancouver harbour. The pathway is always in excellent condition. I walk the seawall 3 times per week.

Note: dogs are not allowed on the seawall itself but are relegated to a small path on the other side of the fence separating the seawall from the train tracks. We walked a short portion from 21st to 23rd. Information signs throughout with local history. Benches for those who need a rest. Quiet on this Friday morning. Fresh air, beautiful... More

This is a wonderful amenity provided by West Vancouver for people of all abilities. You will see runners, walkers, strollers, people using wheelchairs, or folks just sitting watching the world go by. The views are spectacular - from the pier at Dundarave you can often spy Mount Baker behind the Lions Gate Bridge, and have a superb outlook over the... More

I've been walking along the Seawall since 2002 with a group of friends - we call ourselves the Wednesday Walkers. Each week we meet in Ambleside (14th Street) and walk to the Dundarave Pier at 25th, then back to our cars, but stop for refreshments at Starbucks at 17th & Marine.

During any summer day or winter squall this seawall is a delight to walk. Brings out the smiles of even the grumpiest person. Wish we could all walk it everyday. :)

If you want to go for a run with the best views run the sea wall. However be prepared to hurt after. The seawall is sloped and I found it a little hard on my joints. Did I enjoy it hell ya. Would I do it again? Yes... would I run it every day? Don't think my body could handle... More

I've walked along the West Vancouver Seawall every Wednesday with a group of friends since 2001. We park at the Ambleside end (14th) and walk to the Dundarave Pier (26th) and back, for a total of 6 kms. rain or shine! We call ourselves the Wednesday Walkers.

This is a pedestrian only, paved, seawall with lights that offers views of Burrard Inlet and Vancouver, freighters, boats and the cruise ships from May to September. I feel safe walking on the seawall in the evening from John Lawson Park at 18th Street to the pier at Dundarave. Their is a great park for children at John Lawson and... More
