False Creek North

False Creek North

False Creek North is located north of False Creek and south of Pacific Boulevard between the Burrard Street Bridge on the west and International Plaza just east of the Cambie Bridge on the east.

The inlet called “False Creek” used to be five times larger than it is today. In 1859 it was named by Captain George Henry Richards who navigated his ship into the basin during his hydrographic survey of 1856-63 and expected a water link to coal deposits but instead found it to be a dead end.

Soon thereafter False Creek was used for the transport of local lumber by the newly built mills on its south shores. The area surrounding False Creek became more attractive to businesses after the Canadian Pacific Railway extended its railway line to English Bay and the first Granville Street bridge was built in 1889 connecting the two shores of False Creek.

The CPR built large railway yards on the north shore taking advantage of 20 tax free years in return. The area of the railway yards became know as Yaletown because the railway workers who moved there, had previously worked at Yale – CPR’s main construction camp.

Situated along the waterfront, false creek north is bordered by yaletown, the west end and downtown.
