The Seaside Greenway in and adjacent to Kitsilano Beach Park is one of the:
- Most popular sections of our pedestrian and cycling network
- Only sections of the 28km-long Seaside Greenway that is not separated
Temporary bike path on Arbutus Street
As part of our Room to Move initiative, a temporary two-way bike path was installed on Arbutus Street (between McNicoll Avenue and Kitsilano Beach Park’s southern parking lot adjacent to Cornwall) in August 2021.

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

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.
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 Park Board approved the proposed separated cycle path
