Seawalls in Vancouver

The City of Vancouver has 28 kilometres of continuous seawall.  This is the longest continuous seawall in the world!  There are 2 paths on the seawall, one for walkers/runners and one for bicyclists/roller bladers/skateboarders.  There are 4 attached seawalls: Coal Harbour, Stanley Park, English Bay, and False Creek!  The seawalls in Vancouver are one of the biggest attractions in Vancouver and are a must 'thing to do' in Vancouver.  Walking the seawall is the quintessential thing to do in Vancouver and one of the things that makes Vancouver so fantastic!

Construction of the seawall started in 1917.  It took until 1971 until the seawall went around the entirety of Stanley Park!  The seawall keeps getting upgraded and made better!  There was a major windstorm in 2006 that caused major damage to the trees in the park and also heavily damaged the seawall causing it to partially close for months!  It has since been repaired.
