Out and About Walking Tour | South False Creek Seawall
May 7, 2016 @ 2:15 pm - 4:30 pm
Explore innovative urban design and transportation projects along the seawall from Olympic Village to Granville Island with tour guides David Rawsthorne, Lindsay Neufeld and Allan Moors.
Widely known for recreation, the Vancouver seawall is also a fun, convenient and normal way for many residents to travel through the city. Highlights of this walk include the Olympic village sustainable development as well as recent and planned improvements to accommodate the large number of residents who regularly use the seawall. The tour will also include a stop at City Studio, an experimentation and innovation hub where City staff, students and community members design and launch projects on the ground.
The South False Creek Seawall contains some of the newest and oldest sections of Vancouver’s Seaside Greenway, dating back to 1975. It has a unique character and carries high numbers of people walking and cycling, especially in the summer months.
Note: This is a one way tour. Participants can either walk or buy a ticket on the False Creek Ferry to get back to Olympic Village.
