Riding through a Vancouver Park

This is 10th Avenue in Vancouver; people on bikes use this traffic-calmed bikeway in droves, especially this stretch of East 10th Ave passing through China Creek South Park at Clark Drive.
Presumably, at one time, 10th Avenue here was open to motor vehicles, bisecting the park.

The design reminds me of that section of the Seaside Greenway at the new traffic-calmed Point Grey Road where a bike lane runs between Tatlow Park and Volunteer Park, once the location of a busy commuter motor vehicle arterial.
It also looks like the Union Bikeway, one of Vancouver’s busiest, which runs through Strathcona Linear Park at Union St. near Hawks Ave. and is part of traffic-calming on Union St.
