  • The scenery is very beautiful, what is even more difficult is that the ecosystem is very rich, and all kinds of aquatic birds are gathered here, and this is actually in the area. Can't miss the water bus, the price is not expensive, the ship class is intensive, worth recommend

  • When you visit Vancouver, British Columbia a walk along side of False Creek is a must. No matter the weather (it rains a lot in the winter months) it will still be a refreshing and beautiful walk. Small water taxis make it a lot of fun to travel back and forth between Granville Island and downtown. There are all kinds of shops and touristy things to enjoy.
  • Try to come with a bike if you dicide to visit here, but in general you get nice views and a small lake breeze, really relaxing place
  • Nice spot for outdoor activited. Great scenery and not too crowded.
  • Fun place for kayaking and paddle boarding. Can be pretty busy in July and August.
  • It's simply beautiful
