Granville Street Bridge - Review
An 8-lane bridge that crosses over the False Creek, the Granville Street Bridge offers a fabulous view of the city. The bridge has a central pedestrian area along with a cyclists lane.
The original bridge dates back to the late 19th century while the one that stands today, was built in 1954 for the third time. Take a walk over the bridge to see Vancouver through a whole new perspective. The sunset from here is beautiful with the False creek reflecting the shimmering lights to the scene.

Granville Street Bridge, Vancouver Reviews
Walk on the Granville Bridge to reach Granville Public Market for a bird’s eye view of the waterfront.
There is a great view of downtown and mountains.
It’s a bridge over water with nice views what more do you expect.
The markets were lively with great food and live entertainment.
The best bridge for drivers with eight lanes with ramps coming and going everywhere. The person who designed it had a lot of foresight to accommodate future population growth and increased traffic. As a result the bridge is never busy and traffic moves fast. Maybe a bit too fast as the police often watching for speeders. It is fun watching the fastest and expensive cars getting stopped by police. Driving north from South Granville has the best view of downtown with the mountains in the background. If you are going to Stanley park stay in the centre lanes and second exit to pacific boulevard westbound. When driving from downtown to Kitsilano, best to use Howe street, stay in the left lane. Once on the bridge use the right two lanes for Kitsilano. This is better than using the ancient narrow Burrard bridge. The bridge is never congested at anytime of the day. Congestion only happens downtown before you get on the bridge. If you are driving from Yaletown, there is a little used on ramp from Pacific boulevard to get on the bridge. Most traffic on Pacific Boulevard is waiting to turn left on to Burrard bridge. Turn right instead and use Granville, much faster.
