Perhaps one of the largest transformations to the Lower Mainland in the last century has been the False Creek neighborhood. A previous industrial hub, the area has since been revitalized to mixed use waterfront space. A recreational center, False Creek’s main attractions include the seawall, art galleries, public market, and live entertainment. Granville Island is home to many independent theatre companies such as the Arts Club Theatre and Vancouver TheatreSports League. The Armoury District is a designer’s dream, with home design and luxury furnishing retailers galore. With a mix of residential, commercial, and industrial space, there is a little something for everybody in False Creek! Nearby schools include False Creek, Tennyson, and Henry Hudson Elementary, as well as Kitsilano Secondary.
