As designers work in the background to firm up design options for the final Arbutus Greenway, things continue to happen on the temporary greenway. Compared to the last visit, today I saw probably 10 times the number of walkers, riders and dogs.
It looks like the strategy of installing a multi-use temporary surface, with accessible connections in many places, is attracting a diverse user group. All the better for a successful design.

Note the planning markers, probably a divider. Plus mom & kid on scooter.
Shoppers heading home, probably from Kerrisdale. Note the new broom.
Bench location — a genuine natural, given the view from there.
4 wheels on the Arbutus Greenway.
Happy people and a neighbourhood connection.
City of Vancouver crew installing a bench. Apparently there will be around 25 benches (average spacing of one per 360 meters)
Lots of happy faces on the temporary Greenway today. Plus heritage blackberry bushes.
Signs of humans, a fresh new bench and an abandoned tricycle.
