Central Valley Greenway
The Central Valley Greenway is a 24-kilometre route for cycling, jogging, walking, wheelchairs, skateboarding and blading - it's a major transportation and recreation project that is critical to the healthy future of the region. Linking to multiple destinations, communities, and workplaces in the Lower Mainland, it is a focal point for communities needing green space and will provide a model for future greenway projects.
Together with the BC Parkway the route forms the spine of Metro Vancouver’s cycling network and roughly parallels the Millennium SkyTrain Line through the Burnaby portion of the trail. As surfaces and traffic separation vary along the Greenway, please refer the map below when planning your trip. Please allow some time for the map to load.
Central Valley Greenway Route Map
The Central Valley Greenway varies greatly throughout the length of its route. In some sections it is fully constructed as a separated urban greenway or a rural recreational trail. In other sections the route runs parallel to a railway corridor or the edge of an industrial roadway.
Most sections of the trail are suitable for all kind of walking and wheeling (pedestrians, commuter and recreational cyclists, wheelchair users, in-line skating, skateboarding etc.). The exception is in Burnaby where there are some compacted gravel paths less suitable for in-line skating. Note that some sections of the Greenway are composed of interim routes that will be upgraded in the future.
If you plan to bike along the Greenway to the SkyTrain, please see the guidelines for bikes on SkyTrain.
