Owing much of its present character to the social and environmental movements of the 1960s, False Creek has developed from an industrial logging site to become one of Vancouver’s most treasured attractions for locals and tourists alike. Home to many Vancouverites who love living along the “creek” with its many marinas, parks, and ferry-crossings to trendy Yaletown, the area is a popular place to find condos for sale in Vancouver, ranging from modern high-rise buildings to mid-rise complexes.
Nestled between Burrard and Ontario Streets, False Creek is an active neighbourhood to say the least. From jogging along the sea-wall to canoeing, kayaking, and even dragon boating across the water, the list of outdoor recreations based out of the False Creek Community Centre is virtually endless. But it’s also a great place to relax and enjoy a lazy Saturday, strolling through the parks, shopping locally at Granville Island Market, or enjoying lunch with friends at Edible Canada where the patio is almost as awesome as the fresh seafood selection. A smart place for young professionals, artists, and students, False Creek is nearby the Emily Carr University of Art + Design and just across the creek from the business, fashion, and design hubs of Downtown Vancouver.
From local ferry-crossing services to neighbourhood bus routes, False Creek has many convenient ways to get around. For drivers, there are two main bridges into downtown along Granville and Cambie Streets, plus the SkyTrain’s Canada Line connects you directly to the rest of the city.
