A landmark inlet
False Creek is so named because it isn’t a creek, but appears to be one. It’s actually a narrow inlet stretching in from the ocean and it separates Vancouver into two areas, downtown and the rest of the city. Two bridges span it, the Granville and Cambie bridges, both of which allow a good look.
False Creek is actually fairly polluted, thanks to an antique sewage system that spilled waste into the water, along with factories that polluted it over the years. While the city is working to fix the damage done by these problems, it’s taking time for the wildlife to return to the area.
