COAL HARBOUR

The Coal Harbour neighbourhood on Vancouver's downtown peninsula is bounded by Burrard Street to the east, Robson Street to the south, Stanley Park to the west, and the Burrard Inlet to the north.

It was historically the terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway and was used for industrial with shipyards, a seaplane plant, and a lumber mill. These uses fell into decline after World War II and by the 1980s this part of Vancouver was largely a railway yard. It wasn't until 1990, after the construction of BC Place Stadium, that the City developed a plan for the area. The plan envisioned Coal Harbour as a waterfront neighbourhood with a stipulation that 2.75 acres of parkland be dedicated for every 1,000 residents.  

Today, Coal Harbour is a sea of glass high-rises. The Coal Harbour Walkway, lined with parkland, runs along the waterfront and connects to Stanley Park's seawall. The marinas that line the neighbourhood along Burrard Inlet provide both permanent and temporary mooring, but more importantly, provide the subject matter for the game 'How Much Does That Boat Cost?'.
