Building upon last year’s successful ‘Main Street Mosey’, where a group gathered to walk the entire length of Main Street from end-to-end, comes this year’s sequel – ‘Harbour Hop’!
Join the Vancouver Public Space Network for a unique walking experience – an urban hike along all of Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet waterfront. Beginning at the Coal Harbour entrance to Stanley Park, this walk will travel east, along the Coal Harbour seawall, through the historic streets of Gastown and Railtown, past the industrial areas bordering our working port, and through the neighbourhoods of Grandview-Woodland and Hastings-Sunrise, terminating at New Brighton Park. We’ll travel as close to the water’s edge as (legally) possible, enjoying the changing cityscape and stunning views of Burrard Inlet and the North Shore mountains.
Please note that like last year, this is not a guided tour, but rather a communal stroll to enjoy the diversity of our harbour and its bordering neighbourhoods. Come see the many faces of Burrard Inlet – from its forest of glass towers to its historic cobblestone streets to the trucks and cranes of a busy port, to the quiet and leafy East Van neighbourhoods offering peek-a-boo views of the water.

The walk begins at 1pm sharp. Estimated walking time – about 3 hours. (And when the walk is over, transit is close by to get you home.)
Where to Meet?
Meet at the base of Aerodynamic Forms In Space, that funky airplane sculpture on the western end of Devonian Harbour Park, just east of where the pedestrian/cycling underpass under Georgia Street emerges. (Where the Stanley Park seawall ‘begins.’)
This will be a fun, relaxed event. Invite your friends, bring your camera, and wear your most comfortable walking shoes!
