The condominiums in the background are called The Village at False Creek. This used to be called the Olympic Village.

The Vancouver Olympic Village was built for the 2010 Winter Olympics and 2010 Winter Paralympics hosted in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. A 600,000 sq ft (56,000 m2) village with over 600 units, that was able to accommodate over 2,800 athletes, coaches, and officials.

The site, a former industrial area which was previously mostly parking lot, is located on the shoreline at the southeast corner of False Creek, north of 2nd Avenue between Quebec and Manitoba Streets. Just south of Science World, its waterfront is part of the False Creek Seawall promenade and bike route.

Thank you Suzy! And you're welcome! I really don't visit this part of Vancouver very often so I felt like a tourist.

Thank you pattyanne. Yes, False Creek is very photogenic!!

Thanks Jim. Yes, we crossed back on one of these little aquabuses. They are about the size of a van maybe a little bigger and they take a few people and bicycles. We were on it for about 4 minutes and I think the fare was about $2.50 (Canadian). The seabus is much bigger and runs from North Van to Vancouver.
