Likely one of the most photographed features of Vancouver’s East False Creek seawall pathway.
This pathway section and bridge, completed during preparation for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, was the missing link in the route that circles Stanley park and False Creek then follows English Bay west to Spanish banks below the University of British Columbia lands.
The seawall has been under construction since 1917. Adding all the pieces together its approximately a 50 Km waterside jewel. The pathway is separated for pedestrian and wheeled users.
THE CANOIE BRIDGE:
A signature installation along the waterfront of East False Creek is a 40 metre pedestrian bridge.
The Canoe Bridge is designed to evoke the ribs of canoes and kayaks, celebrating the non-motorized boating area to its north.
Its walkway is steel grating, allowing views to the water below, and creating fewer shadows on the water to maximize habitat value.
The bridge’s design evokes the heavy industry of the site’s past and also forms a visual link to the geodesic dome of Science World.
The bridge was built by Megatech and installed in 2008.
