West Side and Kitsilano

Getting Here and Around

Individual attractions on the West Side are easily reached by TransLink buses, but a car makes things easier, especially if you want to see more than one of these sites in a day.

The most enjoyable way to get to Kitsilano is by a False Creek ferry from Granville Island or from the dock behind the Vancouver Aquatic Centre, on Beach Avenue. The ferries dock at Heritage Harbour in Kitsilano, behind the Vancouver Maritime Museum. You can also walk or cycle the 1 km (½ mile) or so along the waterfront pathway from Granville Island (leave the island by Anderson Street and keep to your right along the waterfront, following the Seaside Bike Path signs). If you prefer to come by road, drive over the Burrard Street Bridge, turn right at Chestnut Street, and park in either of the museum parking lots; or take Bus 2, or 22, traveling south on Burrard Street downtown, get off at Cypress Street and Cornwall Avenue, and walk over to the park.
