Explore the Arbutus Greenway

Tour the Arbutus Greenway in this video from mid-2016. The tracks have since been removed.

In the short-term, we are constructing a temporary path that everyone can enjoy while the future greenway is being planned and designed over the next couple of years.

Why a temporary path?

  • 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.

Using the greenway

Permitted uses of the greenway include walking, cycling, or use a non-motorized modes of transportation, such as a wheelchair, push scooter, or rollerblades. (Electric mobility aids are also permitted.)

Dogs are welcome on a leash.

What was once an inactive rail line is now a public space for everyone to enjoy. It runs along Arbutus Street and West Boulevard for approximately nine kilometres.
