Vancouver’s Stanley Park seawall is closed to bikes

Cyclists are instead encouraged to take advantage of Stanley Park’s empty roads, while staying two metres apart

If your Easter weekend plans included a bike ride along the seawall, you’ll have to make a minor adjustment to your route.

The Vancouver Park Board announced today that the Stanley Park seawall is now closed to bikes. Although the closures extend past English Bay to Hornby Street, cyclists are encouraged to use Stanley Park Drive and Beach Avenue. 

 

Those streets remain closed to vehicles following the Park Board’s announcement earlier this week that Stanley Park would be off-limits to motorists indefinitely.
 

These road closures, as well as today’s new measure, are intended to reduce congestion both in the park and on the seawall, making it easier for park visitors to practise physical distancing while getting fresh air during the COVID-19 pandemic.
