False Creek South
Home to Granville Island and Olympic Village
Welcome to False Creek – home to Granville Island, the Sea Wall, Charleson Park and one of the friendliest communities in the city. Bound by 6th Avenue to the south and the water itself to the north, the majority of the residential section of False Creek has limited access for cars, making it surprisingly peaceful for such a central location. Granville Island, with its many galleries and Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, has drawn a large artistic community to the area. Retirees also enjoy the convenience of the “”pedestrian”” lifestyle, as so the many young families who have made this their home. The jewel in the crown is Granville Island Public Market equally used and enjoyed by both locals and tourists alike. East of Cambie Bridge lies Olympic Village, aka South East False Creek. From a faltering start after the 2010 games, this community is now really coming into its own with new stores and restaurants opening every month.
