Yaletown - Downtown South - False Creek North

Yaletown was at one time an industrial zone with railway yards and rundown warehouses covering the entire area. It has become one of the most successful and significant urban regeneration projects in North America. Instead of clearing out the old warehouses planners decided to restore and renovate them, giving Yaletown a distinctly different look and feel compared to the rest of the city. Situated between North False Creek and Vancouver's downtown business core, Yaletown has become the trendiest community in Vancouver. Many of Vancouver's most popular restaurants, cafes, bars, nightclubs, and boutique retail shops are located in the area. Yaletown is not just an entertainment area, many condominiums and loft style apartments have been built out of the refurbished warehouses, making it a cool place to live for young professionals and artists alike.

In recent years Yaletown has expanded from its trendy warehouse beginnings. The Downtown South, Concord Pacific, and False Creek North sections of Yaletown have seen a boom in urban development. Countless beautifully built and very expensive high rises have been and are being built along with new parks and shops. Bringing thousands of new residents and giving the one time old neighborhood a bit of a modern feel.

Vancouverites love their recreation both outdoor and indoor, and Yaletown has a bit of both. A seawall along False Creek can take you from Yaletown to Kits Beach or if you choose the other direction from Yaletown to Stanley Park. It is very popular and used by walkers, runners, cyclists, and rollerbladers rain or shine, and has many small parks and fields along the route. The Roundhouse Community Centre is a spectacular facility that was built over and named after the turning point for trains in the area, and now houses engine 374. Engine 374 was the first passenger train to enter Vancouver (1887) and was left rusting in a Kitsilano park for years until it was restored by train lovers and eventually found a home in this one of a kind recreational centre.
