SAUNTER ALONG THE SEAWALL

By Daniel Wood

I think the Stanley Park Seawall is the fines urban recreational route in the world

Michael Desrochers, Vancouver Park Palnner

In 1911, civic authorities initiated a neighbourhood project in English Bay that would –over the next century-change the face of Vancouver.

Their modest aim: to reclaim a few hundred metres of shoreline from the growing proliferation of rooming houses.

Generations of politicians since have voted to acquire more of Vancouver’s waterfront: today, the city’s famous seawall stretches from the northern downtown core along Burrard Inlet, around Coal Harbour and Stanley Park, eastward along False Creek, then westward past Granville Island and Vanier Park toward the sea cliffs below Kitsilano.

It is the longest uninterrupted urban seafront walkway in the world.

To visitors, the seawall is a place to pause for a photo-op on a bus tour of Stanley Park or to rollerblade on a summer evening.

To Vancouverites, the Seawall-almost always taken in short sections- is the place to go to reflect, to celebrate new love, to find solace, to stroll, or to seek physical challeng.

It is the city’s therapist, companion,  and horizontal Everst.
