MORE UNOFFICIAL UNOFFICIAL SEAWALL

GRANVILLE ISLAND to KITSILANO

I call this section `unofficial unofficial' because it is mainly sidewalks, and dirt and gravel. It is in the mind of government officials but will not be upgraded for several years. Much of it is unusable by skateboarders, roller skaters and bladers, and bicycles with narrow tires. Such means of transportation must leave the waters edge and use the neighbouring sidewalks.

(Apartments, seawall, Burrard Street Bridge, & Boats.)

ISLAND PARK WALK, FISHERMEN'S WHARF, BURRARD STREET BRIDGE, AND GRANVILLE ISLAND.
