Arbutus Corridor illustration

Arbutus Greenway

The Arbutus Greenway is a future, north-south transportation corridor that will connect False Creek to the Fraser River. 

In March 2016, the City purchased the lands known as the “Arbutus Corridor” from Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) for the purpose of creating a transportation greenway

The future Arbutus Greenway will encourage people to travel by foot and bike, and ultimately streetcar, and improve access to public green space.

Temporary pathway

In the short-term, the City is constructing a temporary pathway from Fir Street to Milton Street that everyone can enjoy. We’re looking at several different types of hard-surface materials, especially those that improve safety and accessibility.

Why a temporary pathway?

  • It improves safety for all corridor users.
  • It improves accessibility for people of all ages and abilities.
  • It encourages people to explore and enjoy the corridor.

Permitted uses include walking, cycling, and wheeling, including push scooters, roller blades, and other non-motorized modes of transportation (electric mobility aids are permitted). Dogs are welcome on a leash.
