On Monday, Emily celebrated Family Day walking to Granville Island and doing some shopping. We picked up some vegetables in the market and a cute onesie at Parade. We’ve already received a lot of hand-me-down baby clothing, but this was our first purchase.
It was a beautiful, sunny day and there were hundreds of people out walking and cycling. The seawall between Olympic Village and Cambie Bridge has been recently upgraded to provide more space for pedestrians and cyclists. It’s still not the most scenic stretch, but it is a lot better and less congested than it used to be.
The section between Cambie Bridge and Granville Island needs some love now, and the City of Vancouver and Park Board are looking to upgrade it. A lot of sections are narrow and the cobblestones are annoying for any wheeled users (bikes, rollerbladers, and strollers).
There is more information on the city’s website and a survey to share your opinions.
