False Creek runs from English Bay up to the Science Center. There's now a walking and bike path that runs completely around False Creek - from English Bay, past Yaletown, around the Science Center, and up to Granville Island and beyond. It's a wonderful walk passing many interesting points of interest. Highly recommended.

iif I lived in Vancouver, it would have to be in this area! There are parks galore all along the waterfront from the Science Center at one end to Granville Island at the other. You will see bicycle and walking paths, ponds, a dog park, children's play areas, marinas and even a community vegetable garden. During my month-long stay, I... More

A trip to Vancouver is not complete without seeing the city from the marina is a great option. Travel from the Cambie Street bridge to go along the water to end up at grandvile Island for breakfast!

False Creek used to be Vancouver's industrial inner harbour. One-hundred years later, it has been retrofit and renovated and gentrified. Some of the architecture preserves that history. What remains now is a peaceful places where sky and sea meet. Ringed with places for coffee, places to sit and look at the sea and sky change as big and small boats... More

This is another great place for a casual stroll, as the water meets the city, take a quick walk to Science World or take in the great sites from some of the nice eateries! Just take transit or your vehicle around the area!

This is serious yacht water. Enormous, classy, sparkling white boats moored outside apartments which just have to have cost the earth. You can bob along in the wonderful little ferries and just gaze. It's fascinating stuff for a landlubber.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
