5 Fun Things to Do in Olympic Village, Vancouver

Here's a list of 5 fun things to do in Olympic Village!

1. Rent a Kayak

False Creek is popular with rowers and kayakers all year round! It's an easy paddle towards Granville Island and more advanced kayakers can head out into English Bay to explore the coastline of Kitsilano and Stanley Park.

2. Take a Ride on the False Creek Ferries

False Creek Ferries are small boats that travel up and down the inlet between Olympic Village, Yaletown, Granville Island, Downtown, Kitsilano and is a great way to take in the views of the city. You can also catch the colorful Aquabus from Downtown Vancouver for a cruise along False Creek to Olympic Village.

3. See Olympic Village Square

See the spot where the 2010 Winter Olympics took place and meet The Birds, giant sparrow sculptures by artist Myfanwy MacLeod . You will find these beautiful sculptures between Manitoba Street, Salt Street, Walter Hardwick Avenue and Athletes Way.

4. Enjoy a Cold Beer or Cocktail at Craft Beer Market

Craft Beer Market in Olympic Village brings together beers and ales from around BC and the world (including local brews) in an expansive pub-style establishment that also serves up seasonal bar snacks. Located in the historic Salt Building, this pub is a craft beer enthusiast's dream come true.

5. Explore Hinge Park

Attention dog lovers!! Hinge Park is a naturalized wetland park that covers 2.3 acres and is a popular place for dog walkers. Themed around the concept of the industrial effect of infrastructure on the natural environment, the park includes some quirky features such as a bridge made from an old sewer pipe. Explore the shoreline and look out for starfish, crabs, fish, shellfish, and other sea creatures.
