Greenways are car-lite to car-free AAA active transportation corridors, that serve as high-quality continuous public spaces.
We are planning to upgrade and expand the Portside Greenway to create a continuous route from Alexander Street to Boundary Road that prioritizes safe, comfortable walking, biking, and rolling, with great public spaces along the way.
The Portside Greenway has been identified in many plans over the years, including the Greenways Plan PDF file (7.4 MB) (1995), Transportation 2040 (2012), and the Vancouver Plan External website, opens in new tab (2022). The project also supports key civic priorities including equity and climate action.

The input we received will help shape design concepts for the greenway. Design concepts will be shared in our next round of engagement later this year.
An engagement summary will be shared this summer.
The Portside Greenway follows the industrial waterfront of Burrard Inlet from Alexander Street, along the Powell Street overpass, Wall Street, running adjacent to Bridgeway and ending at the Trans Canada Trail at Boundary Road.
It also links popular destinations and community spaces such as:
