As previously mentioned here, and well-discussed here, a preferred bicycle route through Kitsilano Beach Park to Point Grey Road remains unclear and contentious. An eastern approach through the park has been the major muddle, but a minor problem also exists on the western side, where a desire line links the new greenway with the principal east-west paved path. At the extreme southwestern corner of Kitsilano Beach Park, where the east-west path terminates, westbound bicycles tend to round the pedestrian curb at the intersection of Cornwall and Point Grey Road. Heading east, however, bicycles from Point Grey Road tend to take this dirt desire path. In rainy months, this is bound to be a muddy exercise.
A modified curb at Cornwall and Point Grey Road may be enough to encourage eastbound use of the designated path. The desire line could also be converted to an eastbound path for bicycles, but local opinion has roundly rejected any additional pavement to ease higher bicycle volumes through the park.
On a related note, I have to ask: why is there a chain-link fence along the east-west path at all? An extra half-metre of space could easily be reclaimed to alleviate bike-pedestrian conflicts.
