Hudson Street on the Fraser River (@ SW Marine Drive)
About the Park
The Fraser River Trail is Vancouver's only riverside greenway. The greenway follows as close to the north shore of the North Arm of the Fraser River as possible and, when completed, it will connect Pacific Spirit Regional Park to the City of Burnaby's trail system. To date, McCleery Golf Course, Fraser River Park, Shaughnessy Street park site, Gladstone Park and Riverfront Park waterfront walkways and bikeways are all part of this greenway. Remaining sections of the riverfront trail will be completed as opportunities arise.
The most recent addition is the 350-metre Hudson Street portion of the Fraser River Trail, which was completed in 2010 and beautified with various trees and shrubs, making it a more people-friendly waterfront and a lovely place to watch the airplanes and the 'working' river. Partners include TransLink, which granted the land to the City of Vancouver for the trail and funded its construction along the river for the length of their site; the City of Vancouver’s Engineering Department which secured the trail and oversaw construction; and the Vancouver Park Board which helped design and build the trail and will maintain it.
