GranvilleIs02.jpgGranville Island

BC Highway-99 goes over False Creek on the Granville Bridge just as it goes into downtown Vancouver.  If you could look below this bridge you would see a small island.  Its name is Granville Island.

 

The island has an industrial past. Last time we were there a concrete batch plant, Ocean Concrete, and all its mixer trucks still existed on the island.  All or nearly all of the rest of the industrial residents have left the island and their buildings have been or are being remodeled for commercial use.

 

The original draw to the island was industrial mainly because of its water access and proximity to Vancouver.  In 1979 a transformation began on the island, it was the Granville Farmer’s Market.  It created such massive flows of customers GranvilleIs03.jpgthat other businesses such as restaurants were drawn to this unique location across False Creek from downtown Vancouver.

 

Since 1979 the customer traffic to the island has steadily increased.  Today the island offers an interesting array of shopping opportunities and a variety of restaurants.  There is also a water park for the kids.

 

 

GranvilleIs01.jpgWhere is Granville Island?

Granville Island is most easily found by heading southwest on Howe Street in downtown Vancouver and crossing the Granville Bridge.  At the south end of the bridge follow the signs, they will take you down under the bridge.  The access to the Island is under the bridge as you can see in the photo.

 

At the south end of the bridge turn right (west) onto 4th Avenue, go one block and turn right (north) onto Fir Street.  Go 1 block and turn right on 3rd Avenue.  Go one block and take an easy left onto Anderson Street heading north.  Anderson Street goes under the Granville Bridge and soon you will see the sign shown in the photo for “Granville Island.”

 

Once you are in sight of the “Granville Island” sign start slowing down and watching for pedestrians.  Granville Island is a pedestrian friendly place with people everywhere.  There is limited 3-hour free parking on the island and a couple of parking garages in the center of the island where you can pay to park longer.

 

GranvilleIs04.jpg The photo to the right shows one of the streets on the island.  The island is not a driving place except for finding a parking place.

 

We suggest you set aside a day to discover Granville Island.
