    I am a driver and also a cyclist. Horrified I am, from both perspectives, by the tangle of cars and bike around Kits Beach. Do something now!

    I urge the Park Board to improve the last dangerous segment of the iconic 28 km Seaside Greenway route though the Kitsilano Beach area immediately. This section from the Burrard Bridge west to Balsam Street has many conflicts between the active users as well with vehicles on the adjacent roads.

    The City of Vancouver has just finished a two-lane bike path and restored the east pedestrian sidewalk across the Burrard Bridge. Earlier this year, the City completed the last section the Seaside Greenway from Balsam Street to Jericho park and on to Spanish Banks park. The number of pedestrians and cyclists travelling between Kitsilano and the Jericho parks will increase dramatically. Tourists will be encouraged to experience this incredible venue. Also, comprehensive design work is being carried out on Arbutus Greenway. These world class facilities will draw more pedestrians and cyclists to Kitsilano to experience both the Arbutus and Seaside Greenways.

    Even now the present poorly designed route for this incredibly well-used section of the Greenway either forces people walking and biking who wish to avoid the roads to share a narrow asphalt path or to weave though an extremely busy vehicle parking lot. While many cyclists end up on roads with heavy traffic and parking on both sides. People choose to bike on the Greenway because it is perhaps the most safe, scenic, and flat route in Vancouver and as a result it attracts people of all ages and abilities, including many children, novice, and recreational cyclists. The condition of the Greenway in this section is unsafe for both people cycling and walking on the busy shared path. It deters people on bikes to continue westward to Jericho and Spanish Banks, but for those that do so, it is dangerous as they have to deal with conflicts with inattentive motorists on the roads.

    I look forward to hearing that you will be acting on this issue urgently.

    Hi there, just a short note to let you know that the Seaside Greenway through Kits Beach desperately needs to be improved.


    At best it’s confusing and unpleasant for people on bicycles, at worst someone is going to be seriously injured.


    I understand the controversy over grass and snow fences and all the rest but as along as you are willing to pave a significant part of the park for subsidized car parking, I have a hard time being sympathetic with concerns over a narrow bike lane.


    Regardless, there are many solutions that don’t involve sending parents & children through a parking lot or asking pedestrians to mingle with bikes.


    Please address this issue before another summer of confusion and unease.


    Thank you

Furthermore, shared mixed-use paths (MUPs) are no longer best practice cycling infrastructure. Retrofits to the Seaside- Falsecreek pathway and sections of the Arbutus Greenway Interim Pathway have separate space allocated for people cycling and walking. The Seaside Greenway at Kits Beach path should follow suit.

    Dear Commissioners,


    As a regular user, I would like to ask the commissioners to act to improve the dangerous segment of the Seaside Greenway route in the Kitsilano Beach area. The section from the Bridge west to Balsam Street is one of the least safe and most confusing sections of the iconic 28 km Seaside Greenway.


    The route through this incredibly well-used section of the Greenway either forces people walking and biking to share a narrow asphalt path or forces people to ride on roads like Cornwall Avenue with heavy traffic and parking on both sides as well as through an extremely busy parking lot. People choose to bike on the Greenway because it is perhaps the most safe, scenic, and flat route in Vancouver and as a result it attracts people of all ages and abilities, including many children, novice, and recreational cyclists. My son regularly navigates the parking lot despite vehicles reversing into the cycle path. The condition of the Greenway in this section not only deters those people on bikes to continue westward to Jericho and Spanish Banks, but it is also dangerous to them as they deal with conflicts with inattentive motorists on the roads and is unsafe for both people cycling and walking on the busy shared path.

    hi – I support HUB’s advocacy for improvements to the bikeway along Cornwall, between Cypress and Trafalgar. This is a dangerous segment of an otherwise incredible bike route. I cycle it 3-4 times per week during rush hour, and it really isn’t comfortable cycling so close to parked cars, rushing traffic, and/or pedestrians and dogs.

    As an active senior who cycles 3,000 km a year around and about Vancouver for chores and for recreational exercise, I appreciate the commitment our city has to making biking and walking safer for everyone. As both a cyclist and walker I advocate for complete separated paths – physically separated paths from cars and then clear separate paths for walkers and cyclists.

    Cycling a section of the Seaside Greenway between Burrard and Balsam presents many opportunities for collisions with pedestrians and vehicles and always requires extreme attentiveness and as much eye contact as possible. I urge the Park Board to explore options for separating the three types of road users to make it safer for all. I use that route frequently while cycling during the summer and always wondered why the bike route takes one through a busy parking lot with 2-way traffic and along a pathway shared with pedestrians. I travel slowly but am quite aware that not all cyclists do, which only raises the ire of pedestrians who have a right to be upset by the dangers imposed. We can do better.

    Hello Commissioners

    Yes this is another letter urging you to fix the Greenway near Kits Beach.


    I love going to Kits Park to swim in the pool, hang out on the beach, meet a friend at the restaurant or pass through on my way to another destination.


    I am most often on my bike but never know where the proper route is. This is dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians, especially in the summer months when there are lots of people enjoying the park.


    Please make Kits Park a priority with this year’s park improvements.

    Hi, this part of the seawall, from the Burrard Bridge west to Balsam Street, that goes through the parking lot, is quite dangerous, specially on busy weekends, the bike paths get full of pedestrians, for cyclists is hard to understand where you are supposed to go, and the cars can easily back out without seeing cyclists… Being such a small part of the whole Greenway, it would be really worth it to fix it… because this bikeway goes through residential areas and is mostly flat, I imagine it will be used by kids a lot, so this is really a concern!
