It’s taken a few years, but the Comox Greenway, running from Stanley Park to Burrard, is becoming more heavily used, and loved.

Here are a few shots taken this last weekend:

Ironic perception: the woman with the cane, when asked her opinion about the greenway, felt it was a waste of money because she thought it was only for bikes.  Then she enthusiastically described how she used it as her preferred route when walking, particularly because of the benches and landscaping.

(Larry Frank and Victor Ngo at UBC has documented the before and after effects here.)
