False Creek Community Centre

The waters of False Creek reach into the city of Vancouver like an arm. For years, the passage of water was used for industrial purposes, but all that changed in 1980 when the city of Vancouver decided to develop Granville Island. One of those developments was False Creek Community Centre.

Today, the centre fills False Creek with an array of recreational boaters, including kayakers, canoeists, dragon boaters, and whale surfers. Back on land, the facility boasts a pottery studio, a fitness centre, tennis courts, a water park with a large kid's area, and a talented staff of instructors who teach programs and classes for kids and adults alike.

The instructor did a great job of making me feel comfortable in the kayak and taught us in a positive, helpful manner.

Isabella is an amazing instructor. No matter if you have no prior experience in water sports, she will make you an expert at maneuvering a kayak in 10-15 minutes..
