CANADA PLACE WATERFRONT CENTRE FOOD COURT
GUTOM WALKS Canada Place! Recorded February 3, 2021. This walk starts at Waterfront Centre food court, and goes along the promenade at Canada Place. In the summer, Canada Place is a cruise ship terminal and gets very busy with tourists from around the world. However during a pandemic winter it is pretty quiet.
During the pandemic masks are mandatory inside buildings!
At the time of this recording there is lots of construction going on. A planned expansion of Waterfront Centre and Waterfront station is in the works.
This part of Waterfront Centre used to have shops but now is all construction site.
Waterfront Centre food court. Very conveniently located and connected to Skytrain tunnel. It’s not a big food court, but there are good food options here, a mix of local and chain vendors. No more Starbucks. Maybe it will return when construction is over?
Fatburger Kingburger Supreme $10.99
Fatburger is a good choice for burger cravings. Lots of cheese, and the patty is very flavourful.
Vancouver Convention Centre and Canada Place are big parts of the city’s skyline for their unique design. Canada Place was built in 1983. The convention centre opened in 2009 before the Winter Olympic Games. On Canada Day (July 1) this area is one big party.
The Canadian Trail is a walkway at Canada Place with facts about Canada’s history along the path. Nice place for a stroll while getting some Canadian education. Good for locals, tourists and new immigrants to Vancouver. The best part of course is the VIEW!
Vancouver’s SeaBus started operating in 1977.
It goes from Waterfront Station to North Vancouver’s Lonsdale Quay and back. This is the only route of the Seabus and takes about 12 minutes to go one way.
