Food trucks, playgrounds, community gardens and even old railway cars form some of the ideas from 100 Vancouver residents for the city’s Arbutus Greenway.

The Arbutus Greenway is an old railway line that runs along the east side of Arbutus Street and West Boulevard for 8.5 kilometres between Fir Street and Milton Street.

Currently the path is mostly used by cyclists to commute north and south through Vancouver, but the plan is to make it a destination for residents seeking exercise, natural space and culture.

On Sunday, the City of Vancouver unveiled sketches from 100 residents, which show how they imagine the parcel of land.

The City of Vancouver has hired a team to assess all the designs and create a final scheme that will feature the most promising ideas. The first draft won’t be complete until the spring of 2018.
