False Creek Travel Guide


In 1859 a British surveyor discovered that a centuries-old fishing settlement that he was interested in did not connect to Vancouver’s inner harbour. He was so disappointed with his discovery that he dismissed the area as a “false creek”.

Today, False Creek is lined with wonderful restaurants and waterfront condominiums on the downtown/Yaletown side, and the fabulous markets, marinas and shops of Granville Island on the other. Visitors to False Creek can take a brisk walk along the seawall footpaths while viewing the marinas and enclaves of charming houses and apartments.
