What was home to factories, plants, and sawmills in the early 1900s, Granville Island is now a locals’ favorite and a huge tourist attraction. The neighborhood is located just south of downtown Vancouver on False Creek, under the Granville Street Bridge. You can get there by bus, Aqua bus, on foot/bike, or by car. One of the most popular attractions in Granville Island is the Public Market.
With more than a hundred vendors, the Granville Island Public Market is packed with fresh (mostly local) produce, seafood, meats, and lots of (often locally-made) arts and crafts. It also has loads of readily prepared foods (so you can enjoy a nice picnic outside or dine inside at the food court). Granville Island is also home to the biggest free water park in North America and a perfect play area for young kids (10 years and under). The water park is only open in the summer, from mid-May to early September.
