Lovely to walk along the seawall, and there's lots to see and do. Unfortunately there's a bit of trash and quite a few dirty and aggressive geese. FYI, these geese don't like dogs.

Biked around the city and passed right by the little gem! Biking the city is amazing and is very easy to see all the city has to offer!

Visitors to Vancouver will, in most cases, spend lots of time downtown. There is the famous waterfront, Canada Place, the cruise ships (in season), the home station of Sky Train, and, of course hockey. Anyone travelling to Vancouver should spend some time in this central business and tourist district.

Love cruising into False Creek in the spring and fall when there is less boat traffic. Enjoy saying hi to kayakers and watching the cormorants catching fish. Even sneak into Granville Island to tie up and grab food and coffee from the food court sometimes!

The Stanley Park Seawall gets all the press but the walk along False Creek is extremely pleasant with views of the bridges, the boats and the Vancouver skyline.

As a dragonboat paddler, I can say that this body of water is beautiful all year round. Start a walk around the seawall near Yaletown Roundhouse Canada line station all the way east, around Science World then to Granville Island - great way to see Vancouver's lower downtown.

This is a super little stretch of water which really needs to be explored to take in the beautiful natural and man made structures
