Council approves South False Creek Seawall improvements
May 4, 2016 – Vancouver City Council approved the final design recommendations for improvements to the South False Creek Seawall (Seaside Greenway) between Burrard Bridge and Cambie Bridge. The recommendations will improve safety and comfort for people walking and cycling along the seawall. The project includes widening the seawall pathway, separation between walking and cycling, an accesible public washroom, and public realm improvements.
Staff to recommend final designs at May 4 Council meeting
April 28, 2016 – The manager of transportation planning will present the final design recommendations for South False Creek Seawall improvements to Council at the 9:30am Standing Committee on Policy and Strategic Priorities meeting on May 4, 2016.

Study results published as team includes sea level rise impacts into seawall improvements
October 1, 2014 – Over the last year we collected public feedback and completed a study evaluating the physical conditions of the seawall and identified areas for potential improvement.
We are working closely with the City’s Sustainability Group, which is currently conducting a coastal flood assessment to better understand the potential flood hazard and consequences now and in the future with sea level rise and storm surge. The assessment started in summer 2013 and will finish in mid-2015. The assessment results will impact how we recommend solving the existing conditions on the South False Creek Seawall.
Study timeline extended
January 13, 2014 – Thank you for your participation and continued interest in the South False Creek seawall study. For the last 5 months, we have been collecting feedback from the general public, and reviewing the survey information we received from users last summer.
As we move forward in 2014, we need additional time to:
- Evaluate the user survey and pedestrian and cyclist information
- Review the existing conditions
- Identify potential issues
We will update this webpage when the above information is available for your feedback. The study timeline and process will be revised to allow us time to gather your feedback, and identify the appropriate time to discuss potential solutions.
Drop by and tell us what you think
August 13 to 17, 2013 – We want to know how you currently use the seawall, what issues you experience, and how we can improve active transportation in the short and long term. City staff will be available at locations along the seawall to collect your feedback.
