On the Coal Harbour Community Centre’s green roof, the petals dropped from the magnolia trees carpet the lawn.
The pool by the Bayshore reflects spring blooms. This is only one of the water feature fountains in the Coal Harbour area. The city of Vancouver has worked very hard to create a lively, active and community-oriented street-level experience in this neighbourhood.
A short walk beside the Marina and past the Bayshore leads to the venerable Stanley Park to the west or to downtown Vancouver to the east. This part of the path faces the North Shore.
Looking east along the Coal Harbour recreational seawall, we see Vancouver’s downtown core, mixing with the residential towers. To the left is Cardero’s Restaurant.
The children’s water park fountains are at play, while behind them rise the cranes for upcoming towers, including the convention centre.
