The sun is out. Summer is here. The kids are out of school! What now!? If you’re looking for great family fun, Granville Island is the place to hang out over the summer holidays! There is a wide variety of activities and events happening on the Island all summer long for kids of all ages!

Ferry Family Fun!
Everything about Granville Island is made with family fun in mind. Even getting to the island can be a family fun adventure. Don’t want to deal with traffic or parking? No problem! Taking the Aquabus ferry service is a fun, efficient and fabulous way to get to the island. Your kids will love the boat ride and you’ll love the stress-free experience. Sit back and enjoy Vancouver’s breathtaking waterfront scenery on the way to Granville Island! Check out the Aquabus website for pick up and drop off locations!

Island of Adventure
Kids from all over the world flock to The Kids Market. This fun-filled market has 25 shops, services, and activities that will appeal to your entire family! Your children can enjoy shopping at the market’s many toy stores or let loose in Adventure Zone’s multi-level indoor jungle gym.

Water Park!
With its water slides, sprays, and fountains, on a hot summer day, there is no better place to be than at the Granville Island Water Park! It’s open seven days a week from July until Labour Day in September. It’s the best place in Vancouver to cool off after exploring Granville Island’s many shops and attractions!

If you’d rather keep the family dry during your visit, just south of the waterpark, you’ll find Sutcliffe Park Playground. Your kids will love the slides, climbing frame and saucer swing!

Something for the Whole Family
All this fun will definitely make you and your family hungry! Luckily, you’ll have to look no further than Bridges Waterfront Bistro and Patio! We have something for everyone --even your finickiest family member.

Lunch on the Waterfront!
Bring the family to our world-famous waterfront bistro and patio for some of the best comfort food in the city. The kids will love our Classic Cheese Burger, made with beef ground fresh in-house and topped with Bridge’s own chipotle mayo. If they’re really hungry, we recommend adding some bacon and mushrooms as well! For the vegetarians in the family, we’ve got a fabulously mouth-watering B.C Wild Salmon Burger, served with a fresh and healthy Caesar Salad.

Sharing is Caring
If your family is not in the mood for a big meal, we’ve got plenty of menu items perfect for sharing. There’s nothing better than sharing our freshly baked Nachos on the Waterfront Patio! Add some Chicken Wings served with our house made BBQ or hot sauce and you’ve got instant family fun!

Gelato Goodness!
When your kids are on summer vacation, it’s okay to throw out the rules and put the diet on hold! Bring the family down and cool off with the best handmade gelato in the city! We’ve got cones for the kids! Mom and Dad may want to try our fabulously refreshing Affogato--vanilla gelato with hot espresso poured over it! A great little pick me up after a day out with the kids!

All in the Family
Come down this summer and make Bridges Waterfront Bistro and Patio your regular family destination!
