Urban Grind at Harbour Centre

Comments 4 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Are you missing the Grouse Grind at this time of year? Have you been sneaking around the gate to do the trail anyway although authorities urge against it? Do you simply need to spend an hour walking up something after work? Do you like to see an awesome view of the city after you workout and reach the summit of something 553 feet tall? Then you should consider the Urban Grind at Harbour Centre.

Urban Grind at Harbour Centre

For a $5 admission you can climb the stairs at Harbour Centre and enjoy a beer, DJs, food court voucher, and more when you get to the Vancouver Lookout at the top.

The Urban Grind starts Tuesday, March 3, 2015 and will be open every Tuesday in March from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. Participants can complete unlimited circuits during that time, if the 360 degree views of the city if the Lookout don’t distract you too much. The $5 admission is also at least $10 cheaper than the regular Lookout adult fee.

    For free you can just go for a walk or a hike anywhere you want.

    Hi buke,

    This is true, which is why I have published literally thousands of blog posts about exploring places like Stanley Park (this post about some of my favourite trails is timely: http://www.miss604.com/2014/08/4-stanley-park-trails-you-should-explore). However, this is actually a discounted way to experience the Vancouver Lookout AND get in a workout by climbing over 550 feet into the sky at one of the city’s most popular attractions. It’s something different, thus I found it worthy of promoting.

    Thanks for this post, Rebecca. I actually did the urban grind yesterday. It was totally worth it. Btw, I am impressed with your very graceful, classy (as jen said) reply!
