Lighted sphere in the sky
Walk around Vancouver’s water’s edge.
False Creek to Olympic Village and Return through City of Vancouver walk.
The False Creek Olympic Village walk, downtown, harbour and to Science World where I’ll end my walk. I walk through time, not steps or distance – only time.
Walk this promenade and imagine how it used to look before it was transformed into what it is today.
This area, and all of Vancouver, is the shared, overlapping territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh. It was known as the “supermarket of the nations” because it was incredibly rich in seafood and vegetation.
This route features:
- 2010 Olympic Aboriginal Welcome Work
- Indigenous mural
- Olympic Winter Games Opening Ceremonies site
- On the way back, I’ll take a walkabout through Downtown Vancouver
- Vancouver Harbour
- Stay awhile; all and all will walk around 4 hours.
This circular walk travels along the pedestrian and cycle-friendly seawall.
As you walk alongside False Creek, you will see Vancouver’s commitment to publicly accessible green spaces and waterways and the focus on sustainable building and modern design in this new community.
