According to the City of Vancouver, early construction of the Seawall was overseen by Park Board master James Cunningham. He oversaw construction for 35 years.
The Seawall loop around Stanley Park was officially completed on September 21, 1980, after a final round of paving between Third Beach and Second Beach.
The 9 km route takes between two to three hours to walk and approximately one hour to cycle.
The Park Board also released the same clip expanded into a two-minute timelapse.
