Olympic Village
Home<Canada<Vancouver SkyTrain<Canada Line<Olympic Village

Olympic Village is a Canada Line Station with an island platform and a separate staircase, escalator, and elevator that leads up to the mezzanine level just above. From here there is a single up escalator/staircase and an elevator to the stations only entrance inside its own building with the usual wooden roof and bare concrete walls. This is along 6 Avenue just west of the overpass of Cambie Street since just north of the station the line passes beneath False Creek. Just beyond the station entrance is one of the platforms for the Vancouver Downtown Historic Railway that had Service Temporarily Suspended signs all along the platform in October 2011. There is a car barn with a historic streetcar outside.
Artwork: 'Le Banc' (The Bench) by Marie Khouri, is a round sculpted bench that can be sat on just beyond the station.
