  • What are Vancouver’s Best Public Spaces? - Spacing Vancouver
    Robson Square is Vancouver s only central downtown public square For a few years it was a dead zone The City of Vancouver resuscitated it by bringing back the skating rink adding food trucks and closing down the 500 block of Robson Street to allow for funky street furniture every summer turning it into the city s living room If you want to get away from it all head up the hidden steps to beautiful gardens above Down below you can skate in the winter or salsa dance in the summer And near street level you can posh it up at the Vancouver Art Gallery Cafe or grab a sandwich from Mom s Grilled Cheese and eat on the Gallery steps Now if they could only finally do something about the sad sack of mulch that is the Gallery s North Plaza Photo SniperPhotoShots 2 Granville Island One of Vancouver s longest running public space success stories Granville Island has always been a hub of diverse activity The small island is home to theatres Emily Carr University and art gallery artisan shops a micro brewery a massive toy store cafes restaurants playgrounds a yoga studio community centre street performers and a bustling market There are no chain stores allowed so everything is local 3 English Bay At the foot of Davie Street along Beach Avenue sits one of Vancouver s finest beaches where you can sit on a bench or a log dip your toes in the sand and get a glorious view of the sun setting and dipping below the ocean Any time of year you can watch bikes and rollerbladers go whizzing by grab some food at one of the local restaurants and watch tourists pose with the Ah Mazing Laughter statue 4 Grandview Park Grandview Park is nestled in the heart of Commercial Drive one of Vancouver s best neighbourhoods Once a hangout for drunks and shady characters the park was renovated in 2010 and has become the centre of the community Year round families congregate in the playground just outside the Eastside Family Place musicians strum guitars artists sell their wares and cyclists play bike polo Photo Grandview Park 5 Olympic Village Opened to the public after the 2010 Winter Games the Olympic Village is one of the city s most gorgeous examples of landscape architecture The central square is home to two giant sparrow sculptures and is flanked by two great brew pubs and a bakery cafe There are beautiful places to sit along the new seawall extension and the newly created Habitat Island which to some has become better known as Beer Island just please take your garbage out with you people Photo VPSN What are your favourite public spaces in Vancouver Jillian Glover is a communications advisor who specializes in urban issues and transportation She is a former Vancouver City Planning Commissioner and holds a Master of Urban Studies degree from Simon Fraser University She was born and raised in Vancouver and is

  • Metro Vancouverites Reject Improvements to Transit - Spacing Vancouver
    over the course of the plebiscite what we heard especially from the younger generation was support for More public transit The good service we provide The plan put forward by the Mayors But convincing people to vote for a tax increase is a tough sell even when it will pay for much needed transit and transportation improvements Our region expects to welcome over one million new residents over the next 30 years A no vote doesn t change the fact that our current transportation system will be challenged by this growth With no new funding we will have no capacity to expand the transit system or provide increased service Costs and customer demand will rise at a time when funding is essentially frozen As a result current service levels may be affected and we could face tough decisions in the weeks and months ahead Respected independent experts and analysts repeatedly point to TransLink s record of cost efficiency and sound financial management We will continue to earn that reputation by cutting costs and maximizing revenue opportunities wherever we can The need for funding has not gone away and we expect that the search for an acceptable source of regional funding will continue In the months ahead we will work with the Province the Mayors Council our customers and the public to find a way to fund much needed transit for our rapidly growing region Our commitment to running a safe and reliable transit and transportation system remains as strong as ever Although it ended with a no outcome the plebiscite started a good debate across the region on the importance of transit That debate will continue Thank you to everyone who participated Sincerely Doug Allen Interim CEO TransLink Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Related Posts
