More info: False Creek is a short inlet of water in the heart of Vancouver and it separates downtown from the rest of the city.
Originally the industrial heartland of Vancouver in the 1950s consisting of sawmills and small port operations, today False Creek is one of Vancouver’s most picturesque and upcoming waterfront neighbourhoods. It borders the West End and Yaletown to the north and the city’s Downtown Eastside to the east. Its eastern end is also close to both BC Place Stadium and Chinatown. To the south, the water borders the edge of Kitsilano, Granville Island and Vancouver’s Olympic Village.
Sites of interest located along False Creek include Granville Island, the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, the Museum of Vancouver and Vanier Park. False Creek is also the location of Yaletown with lots of trendy restaurants, the Olympic Athletes Village and the False Creek Seawall. The Seawall provides a fantastic place to go for a stroll or a bike ride and enjoy the views of the water and city. Small harbour ferries travel up and down False Creek dropping off passengers at the various sites of interest.
Three bridges cross the False Creek waterfront – the Cambie Street Bridge, Burrard Street Bridge and Granville Street Bridge.
