Beautiful stretch of water and we caught a tug boat ferry along and then changed to a larger floating ferry. Awesome views and gorgeous stretch of water, hidden gem for us as last visit we were not aware of. Close to city centre and cheap to get to, train or taxi.

The new trail connecting the science centre to kits beach is fantastic. Just stunning views of the harbor and city line. It is a nice walk and bike trail. The pedestrians and cyclists have their own paths for the most part so you can relax. The trail goes through Granville Island, where you can stop to shop, use the rest... More

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.
