Introducing Downtown Vancouver
Downtown Vancouver is a peninsula bounded by water on 3 sides.
To the north is Burrard Inlet, and the luxury residential towers of Coal Harbour nestled on the shore.
On the south side is False Creek, and the surrounding area at its shore is known as Yaletown.
To the west around English Bay is the West End (one of Vancouver’s older neighbourhoods), which leads to Stanley Park.
At the centre is the area known as Downtown, a combination of business and residential use, with historic Gastown in the east of the downtown area.
