City Waterfront

With uses ranging from waterfront industry and marine activity to residential, retail and public spaces, the City's waterfront is a significant asset to the community. Strategically situated along nearly six kilometres of Burrard Inlet, with spectacular views of downtown Vancouver and the North Shore mountains, the waterfront is both a tremendous location and a gateway to the Greater Vancouver region. 

The City's Central Waterfront has been transformed into an exciting and unique community destination, delivering on Council's vision to create a family, arts and entertainment focused area. The waterfront is a striking venue for countless community events, concerts and markets, including the popular Shipyards Night MarketSummer Sessions Concert Series, the City's annual Christmas Festival and other events year round.

The City Skate Plaza @ The Shipyards is closed for the season.
The perfect place for kids to cool off when the hot weather hits.
