Why False Creek is “False”

George Henry Richards named False Creek during his survey of the coast in the mid-19th century. He thought he was going up a creek while traveling the south side of the Burrard Inlet, but soon discovered his mistake, hence the name ‘False’. Some of the best views of False Creek can be seen from the Granville Island Hotel patio.
