    Went with my two teenagers and a 6-yo daughter. Many interactive activities - everybody will find sth interesting. We all had a great time playing with different puzzles and learning at the same time.
    Spent there almost 4 hours.

    Missed a bit things related to cosmos and space exploration.

    I was expecting more of a hockey arena type of feel. This was total opposite. It's not steep like that so you don't feel like you are going to fall down the stairs. :) Feels very open and actually comfortable. Great place for concerts, loved it. Bring $$$$ the food and liquor VERY expensive.

    Nice section of downtown to visit for food and happy hour. Not a tonne of options when you compare Vancouver to other major downtown cities but good food none the less! Reservations are a must as it gets very busy especially during happy hour

    Located near the eastern end of False Creek, this is a great example of architecture from the railway age (about 100 years ago). Only a few paces from the Skytrain Station, so take a moment to a look at this piece of history before resuming your bike/hike.

    This is a great bar that feels like a 'local'. They brew their own beers and it is a relaxed atmosphere. No pressure to buy food and just enjoy a drink after being out sightseeing all day. A good variety of people go in there for drinks and a warm fire in the bar area.

    Went to see CPR Engine 374, but, unfortunately, the exhibit was already holding Fall/Winter hours and was closed on Tuesdays, the next-to-last day of my Vancouver visit. However, the locomotive is glass-enclosed so I was able to spend half-an-hour taking photos through the glass. One great addition to my personal Canadian history portfolio!

    Very nice, roomy casino, with two levels of slots are far as the eye can see and whatever table games you like. I found the drinks at the bar to be a bit overpriced, but you come here for the experience I suppose.

    If you are walking/hiking/biking the seawall in this part of Vancouver, you probably want to plan for rest breaks. This is a great place to do just that. While it has been about a year since I've been this way, it still seems a natural to stop here, catch my breath, and enjoy the views before continuing west.
    If you are curious about the history of this park and other amenities available, please see the excellent review immediately below this one - no sense me repeating what PookyCake has said.

    If you are not an expert in modern art maybe you don’t visit the museum however it’s a good plan in a raining day.
    It was my pleasure to enjoy the exposition of Japanese Murakami - The octopus eats its own leg spending there a great couple of hours.

    This is a nice little park that backs up to some high rise buildings and looks out on the water. Maybe not worth a special trip but if you are in the area.

    We were served by a chatty older gentleman, who was quite nice. Enjoyed their craft gin and whisky. Whisky was average but the gin was quite nice. Parma pizza was good too.

    Engine 374 Pavilion is run by lovely volunteers, who have so much knowledge to talk to you about, have a go ringing the bell and take some photos of this impressive train, that had almost been left to rack and ruin twice in the last 100+ years but now has a splendid home

    In my earlier review of False Creek, I gave a brief historic overview and noted that from the 1950s all the way through to the 1990s the area was “very much an industrial heartland.” Within that context, False Creek played home to many industrial buildings, sawmills and concrete silos. In brief, it wasn’t exactly the tourist mecca it is today; instead, it was kind of a rough and tumble eyesore. In the early 2000s, however, Vancouver City Council began to recognize False Creek’s potential for development and, over the course of 20 years, it’s become a Canadian showpiece for urban development and planning.

    Outside of Hinge Park, I think Coopers’ Park is perhaps the best example of False Creek’s redevelopment, at least in microcosm. Over the span of 1.71 hectares, Coopers’ Park pays homage to False Creek’s industrial past while concomitantly illustrating its urban present. For example, as you walk along the park’s pathways, you’ll inevitably come across signage and information plaques highlighting the area’s early history. Coopers’ Park, we learn, is actually the former site of the Sweeney Cooperage and Sawmill, which operated until 1981 (to make way for BC Place and the new Cambie Street Bridge). Looking at Coopers’ Park today, you’d be hard pressed to find any significant evidence of the Cooperage and Sawmill. Instead, we’re more likely to admire the greenspace, which plays host to many a beautiful cherry tree, children’s playground and basketball court.

    Indeed, as I walked through this lovely park, I couldn’t help but feel at ease. There was just something relaxing about observing people playing a game of basketball, or walking their dog, despite the ongoing stress of the pandemic. Maybe it was seeing that tiny glimpse of “normal” that we’ve all been missing for over a year?

    Glad to see this nice statue of our hero Terry Fox. Interesting that it was located at the entrance of the BC Place Stadium. Worth a visit, as we like to come here we we are in the downtown area.
