About 10-15 mins of a walk to this serene and beautiful location. Sit outside and people-watch, as you grab lunch from a nearby restaurant or food truck. Or enjoy the gorgeous view of the water, mountains, and nature. Itching for more? The pedestrian and bike-friendly seawall is just steps away! Head west to discover more of Vancouver's south false creek area... you'll eventually pass by Granville Island (another touristy location). Or head east/north to Vancouver's northern false creek area... you'll pass by Science World. Come by around sunset time, and catch a spectacular sunset! Get your camera ready!

Getting an itch to explore and/or exercise? This big neighbourhood park offers a large grassy area to perform exercises (squats, jumping jacks, pushups, etc), a gravel track to jog, walk, or run at your own pace, as well as some exercise machines spaced along the track. Got children? There's a playground that has a soft rubbery flooring to protect against any falls. Wanting to relax and breathe in fresh air? Grab a blanket, and relax on the grass. People-watch, dog-watch, listen to music, or read a book. Spectacular especially when the weather is nicer. About 15-20 mins walk from the loft. There's also some food options across the street (ie Tim Horton's, and Steve's Poke Bar)

Cold weather usually draws people towards hot and steamy soups, stews, and chilis. A small gem of a cafe that offers freshly made items that are locally prepared in Vancouver. The items are frozen and ready to use. Simply heat and serve. Personally, I love the chicken coconut curry soup, and my husband loves the Mac and Cheese entree. About 3 blocks away from the loft! https://vancouversoupcompany.com/
