Waddle Lane

You’ve probably walked, biked or jogged around our city’s seawall, but have you tried to waddle around it yet?

For a limited time only, Vancouverites can now explore the city’s iconic seawall “penguin style”. To celebrate the new Penguin Point exhibit, the Vancouver Aquarium together with the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation have created a “waddle lane” on the Stanley Park seawall.

The lane will consist of 40 walkway stencils sporting a penguin instead of the usual stickman for pedestrians. The stenciling will start at the beginning of the Stanley Park seawall in Coal Harbour and continue around the wall to English Bay.
Penguins waddle for a good reason – to conserve energy. They sway between steps, creating momentum, using a lot less energy to move. Get waddling soon, as the waddle lane will only last until the next rain washes it away.

Earlier tonight, the penguins at @VancouverAqua were up for a swim #NATA #fb

And if you’re a penguin fan, stop by the new Penguin Point exhibit at the Vancouver Aquarium. They’re very social creatures!
