False Creek Ferries / Aquatic Centre

Designated a quiet beach Sunset is a less populated jewel of a sandy spit close to the West End and the new Downtown South/Yaletown neighbourhoods. Positioned at the mouth of False Creek where once 13 beehive sawdust burners belied the industrial sawmill operations of the fledgling city, Sunset's waters have been reclaimed for safe swimming. Well behaved dogs will find an off leash area to the south of the nearby Vancouver Aquatic Centre, Vancouver's Olympic size natatorium which replaced the city's first such facility, Crystal Pool, demolished in 1974.
