Parking and Travelling to Granville Island
Granville Island is readily accessible by public transit, car, ferry, bike or on foot.
by CAR – FREE PARKING is available all week long under Burrard Bridge. Enter at the foot of Fir Street at West 1st Avenue and look for the signs. Thank you to the Squamish Nation for their generous support. Note: it is a 20-minute kid’s pace walk from the parking lot to Granville Island, so make sure you arrive at least 45 minutes prior to your show to allow enough time to get there.
