Details of Comox-Helmcken Greenway shared with residents, open houses planned

The transportation planning team working on the Comox-Helmcken Greenway is hosting open houses to share details of the upcoming project to redesign Comox and Helmcken St.

The City of Vancouver describes the project in the following manner on their website:

The Comox-Helmcken Greenway will provide an important east-west connection through Downtown from False Creek to Stanley Park and will be developed in two phases.

The Comox-Helmcken Greenway project will:

  • Connect parks, schools, community centres, cultural features, historic sites, neighbourhoods and retail areas
  • Encourage people of all ages and abilities to explore their city by walking or wheeling by bicycle, wheelchair, stroller
  • Skateboard and in-line skates in a comfortable, convenient and interesting way
  • Improve pedestrian safety
  • Beautify the street with gardens and trees
  • Provide places to sit, rest and socialize
