keviahan..you are quite right about the divided sea-walk around Stanley Park. The difficulty with this is that skateboards and blades share the same lane as cyclists and again there have been incidents and near incidents of pedestrians being hit by speeding cyclists who find their Olympian speeds being curtailed by "families on wheels" and so they tend to jump on to the pedestrian section. As you may know, the pedestrian walk is approximately six inches under the level of the mobile lane, meant as a safeguard, and that is what I mean when I say that cyclists "jump" lanes. There are no automobiles on either lane so the menace is the cyclist and the bicycling mentality to be aggressive and to hell with rules.
