Granville Island is one of Vancouver's most famous landmarks. Situated on False Creek with views of downtown Vancouver, the 37-acre island is home to an array of shops, restaurants and theatres, as well as the immensely popular Granville Island Public Market.
Created in 1915, Granville Island began as an industrial park. Its transformation into a must-visit attraction and culture hub is one of the most successful urban redevelopment projects in North American history.
To start our tour, walk through the main entrance to Granville Island, at the junction of Anderson St. and Lamey's Mill Rd., directly below the Granville Island Bridge.
