Carrall Street Greenway

Blog by Ian Watt | November 5th, 2006

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.

Project Support
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.
