The Carrall Street Greenway is a major public realm, community building and economic revitalization initiative.
The route will link north False Creek with the Burrard Inlet, completing a seawall loop around Downtown and Stanley Park, and connecting a series of parks, plazas and historic sites in Gastown, Vancouver's Downtown Eastside and Chinatown.
Beyond providing a pedestrian and cyclist-friendly transportation corridor, the greenway will also connect and build on the unique heritage character of these neighbourhoods, encourage active ground floor uses, and serve as a catalyst for economic revitalization and community development.
Please explore this website to learn more about the many facets of this project. You'll find a detailed look at the greenway design itself, as well as the historical context of the neighbourhood, the economic revitalization efforts underway and its community-building and arts and culture components.
This project has received significant support from the public and private sectors as well as the local communities. The City of Vancouver has approved $5 million for the Carrall Street Greenway in the 2006-2008 capital budget plan. As well, the Vancouver Agreement partners and Bell Canada have committed $300,000 to the project as part of the Downtown Eastside Economic Revitalization Plan.
