Vancouver's Waterfront Community
The curves of the Columbia River hold a wealth of cultural and recreational experiences for visitors to explore. From shopping and dining to water sports and parks, Vancouver's waterfront community continues to grow.
What does a day at The Waterfront look like? Plan to grab a fresh seafood dish on the WildFin patio—or swing by the seasonal walk-up What A Catch Fish Bar window for a quick bite of fish 'n' chips and a soft-serve ice cream cone—while watching sailboats pass by the 90-foot Grant Street Pier. A gathering place for all who visit the Waterfront, the cable-stayed pier is the focal point of the new waterfront park, complementing the surrounding $1.5 billion project by Gramor Development. Grab a local beer from Ruse Brewing or The Waterfront Taphouse, or sip a Washington wine at Maryhill Winery's newest satellite tasting room. You can even do a whole wine walk to six tasting rooms within a few blocks! Head to Twigs Bistro if a martini is your drink of choice, or just enjoy a tasty supper while the sun sets on the horizon.
Bring the kids to play in the City of Vancouver's new 7.3-acre Waterfront Park that features an open lawn for cartwheels, an urban beach for sandcastles, and seating areas perfect for picnics. The Headwaters Wall is an interactive water play feature, complete with a bronze topographical map of the Columbia River's watershed. The Waterfront Renaissance Trail connects to the park, extending the current five-mile trail from Vancouver's urban core to Wintler Park and across the Vancouver Land Bridge to Fort Vancouver.
At the adjacent Terminal 1, the Port of Vancouver is planning a public marketplace that will supplement downtown's thriving Farmers Market, a trendy AC Hotel by Marriott, and commercial and community spaces for all to enjoy.
Stay up-to-date with the Waterfront development by checking out the live web cam footage of the site as it undergoes construction.
