Our hotel was located at False Creek, we walked around at different times and we always felt safe. Close to Granville and downtown.

False Creek has a lovely view with parks all along its edge that is pedestrian and dog-friendly. Large walkways, many open spaces and easy access from a variety of directions... it's a great open urban space.

We were there the 21 of June and the Dragon Boats were racing in False Creek. There were lots of spectators and exhibits. I believe they race quite often, but you do need to get over there to check (unless the racers are at your hotel). We used the Aqua Taxi to get across.

I went for a run here last week on a bright sunny day, and I was amazed at the beauty of the views. I followed the boardwalk all the way along the South-most border (about 3.5km). The False Creek offered beautiful views of the docks, boats and bridges, and I was lucky enough to see people dragon boating and canoeing.... More

A nice walk with a great view. But definitely, not the best! If you are close and have some time, do it. Otherwise, save time to other places.

We were walking from the Skytrain to the Olympic Village and walked along False Creek. Nice area, friendly people and their dogs. We watched the Dragon Boats workout along False Creek. The park was nice too. It looked like they were making some improvements.

It is interesting to see an area where nearly everyone has a chip on their shoulder. I have not met such arrogant, rude people anywhere in the 25+ countries I have visited. Positively awful.

The beaches on False Creek are an excellent way to spend an evening. After a day of exploring the city, we were happy to sit down with some Okanagan cherries and watch the sun go down over the harbour. The following morning we used the ferry service (which seemed to be only for tourists) to get back and forth a... More

You should stop by False creek and take a walk on the seawall. It is free and spectacular. There is Granville Island, Olympic Village, you can walk all the way to Kitts Beach
