Reconnecting to the Waterfront

Our River. Our City. Our Future.

"As the birthplace of the Pacific Northwest, our community is forever connected to the Columbia River. It is our link to the past and, with today's hard work, the key to our future."
~ Mayor Timothy D. Leavitt (2013 State of the City)

Work is now underway to reconnect downtown Vancouver with the Columbia River waterfront - access that has been blocked for over 100 years. Vancouver’s waterfront will soon be home to jobs, restaurants, shops, housing, a hotel and a park as new development reconnects 35 acres along the Columbia River to the city’s historic core.
