The Seawall

Jane Durante – ‘It’s really an extraordinary circumstance. It’s phenomenal when you think about it that we have such access to miles and miles of waterfront. It’s the envy of city planners everywhere.

But it is the diversity of the seawall that makes it great. It changes all the time as you go around. In Yaletown, it’s restaurants and public art. In Stanley Park, it’s wild and natural. In Kitsilano, it becomes beaches. Wherever it touches residential areas, it is full of terrific social, gathering, garden-like spaces, such as the stretch along Harbour Green or around Granville Island.’
