What's happeningShare your input on a separated cycling path in Kitsilano Beach Park
Help us improve the Seaside Greenway at Kitsilano Beach Park to make it a comfortable route for all users, including children, families, and people with reduced mobility.
Round 1 of engagement is open until August 30, 2021.
Temporary bike path on Arbutus Street
As part of our Room to Move initiative, a temporary two-way bike path will be installed on Arbutus Street (between McNicoll Avenue and Kitsilano Beach Park’s southern parking lot adjacent to Cornwall) in August.

About the project
This project will:
- Establish a safer and more comfortable separated cycling path that connects Balsam St to Ogden Ave across the park for all users, including children, families, and people with reduced mobility
- Improve entryways into the park
We are aware of the challenges associated with the bike and pedestrian routes in this area and will work with the public and stakeholders to find solutions that work for everyone.

Engagement round 1: priorities and possibilities
The first round of engagement will ask park and Greenway users, residents, and businesses what is important to them regarding how they access and connect to Kitsilano Beach Park and the Seaside Greenway.
We are here
Engagement round 2: cycle path route options
The second round of engagement will ask people to evaluate different separated cycle path design options based on the values and priorities identified in round 1, and will help identify a preferred route for the path.
Engagement round 3: preferred route
The third round of engagement in early 2022 will help to confirm and fine-tune the preferred route. Feedback will be used to finalize the route that will be presented to the Park Board for decision.
Park Board decision
The outcomes of engagement will be presented to Park Board commissioners for a decision on the route of the separate cycling path.
