The City of Vancouver is holding the last of three open houses this weekend on the proposed Arbutus Greenway.

The Arbutus Greenway is a plan for a walking, biking and — in the future — electric streetcar path from False Creek to the Fraser River, passing through eight different neighbourhood park and community spaces.

The city bought the land, which stretches from Kitsilano to Marpole, from CP Rail in 2016.

That purchase, which cost $55 million, followed much higher demands from the railway as they announced plans to roll trains through the then-unused set of tracks.

Before the purchase, the railway company dismantled long-standing community gardens — to the dismay of some residents.

Last year, the city held public consultations about what the corridor could look like.

The third and final open house on the Greenway plan is Saturday, April 28th from 12-3 p.m. at 511 West Broadway.
