Waterfront so-so for another summer

We thought Queen’s Quay would be more finished by this year. Didn’t they throw an opening celebration one month ago? Danica and I were out of town for that, so today was our chance to ride the bikes and see what was new.

“Let’s keep riding until we get to the spectacular stuff,” said Danica, as we rode along wondering where the wonderful bits were. There IS a lot of new concrete, but no “spectacular”.

East of the Harbour Castle Hotel, the bicycle path still isn’t finished. The way is interrupted by, you guessed it, construction. Tridel trucks cut off cyclists and the Bayside condo development (yes, more condos, now creeping eastward) will not be finished this year. Maybe next summer, the ride downtown will finally be decent. This summer, it’s still kind of a mess down there.
