The Arbutus Greenway is a future, north-south transportation corridor that will connect False Creek to the Fraser River.
In March, 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.
Background and history of the Arbutus Corridor; including details of the agreement between CP and the City.
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.
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.
Come to a public workshop to learn about different temporary pathway options and share your thoughts:
Each workshop covers the same materials. Space is limited.
This is the beginning of a broader conversation on the future Arbutus Greenway. Look for more opportunities to get involved, starting in late fall 2016.
