Stanley Park seawall reopens after maintenance work

Nov 30 2019, 1:42 pm

A section of the Vancouver seawall reopened Saturday after being closed for nearly two weeks because of maintenance work.

Crews were doing rock scaling work on a section in Stanley Parkย between Prospect Point and Third Beach. Workers wrapped up the job Saturday afternoon, according to the Vancouver Park Board.

So runners, cyclists, and rollerbladers can once again see the magnificent seawall views all the way around the park.

The maintenance work helps reduce the risk of debris slides on the seawall, according to the Park Board. The path that wraps around Vancouver’s shoreline was completed in 1980, after more than 60 years of work.
