Situated between the iconic Science World sphere, BC Place Stadium and the Cambie Street Bridge is Vancouver’s waterfront False Creek community.
It’s one of the city’s most picturesque neighbourhoods and a model of sustainability, with easy access to public transportation and eco-friendly infrastructure projects like the Olympic Village. Plus, residents of False Creek benefit from the area’s close proximity to many of Vancouver’s most popular destinations, from the eclectic mix of cuisines in Chinatown to the fresh produce markets on Granville Island.
