Granville Island

Vancouver BC Tourist Information and City Guide

Granville Island is located in the heart of Vancouver.  It was transformed from a declining 37-acre industrial park in Vancouver's False Creek into a popular tourist destination.

The island was reborn in the form of a public market, art school, shops, restaurants, theatres, galleries and hotel.

The market also features a wine shop and a micro-roaster of organic coffee.
