Stanley Park Seawall Construction

Vancouver's iconic seawall is one of the regions biggest draws, offering 22 kilometres of cycling, roller blading, running and walking trail along the city, Stanley Park and the Pacific Ocean. With all that use the Seawall has fallen into disrepair on some sections requiring parts to be repaved or in some cases completely rebuilt. Are you looking to take a trip down to the Seawall anytime soon? If you are planning a walk or ride along the Seawall, keep in mind that there will be several section closures along the Stanley Park Seawall with estimated completion in late Fall 2010.

The Stanley Park Seawall is closed between Stanley Park and the entrance to the Park at the West End.Detour sign along the closed section of the Stanley Park Seawall in Vancouver, British Columbia.The Seawall is one of Vancouver's most iconic 'landmarks', stretching 22 kilometres from Canada Place to Kitsilano Beach. Constructed between 1914 to 1980, the Seawall has undergone many repairs and from July 2010 to late Fall 2010 two sections of the Park will be reconstructed.

  • Section One is located along the Stanley Park Seawall between Second Beach and the south entrance into the Park (map)
  • Section Two is located along the English Bay Seawall from the Inukshuk and east toward the Burrard Street Bridge (map)

Seawall users will find detours around both construction sections. Pedestrians, cyclists and rollerbladers should follow signage indicating detours and obey flag persons located at construction access points. Stay safe and be aware!

The Seawall at Second Beach has been completely torn out and is being worked on during low tide.

Cyclists, Roller bladers, walkers and automobiles should be extremely careful at the southern exit/entrance to Stanley Park as there have been traffic changes and detours for the Stanley Park Seawall construction.Although closed, curious passersby can still peek at the construction progress on the Seawall along the detours and from Second Beach.
