Coal Harbour & Canada Place

Despite the fact that Coal Harbour is right downtown, it’s a surprisingly calm little neighbourhood, right on the water’s edge. It’s even more surprising given its industrial history as a former shipyard sitting right next to the railway terminus. Coal Harbour is a charming mix of business and residential.

Bordering Stanley Park, Coal Harbour’s big attraction is the view, seawall and the laidback atmosphere, with plenty of spots to grab a scenic meal or watch the floatplanes. Head south along the seawall to the landmark Vancouver Convention Centre, stopping at Jack Poole Plaza for a selfie with the 2010 Olympic Cauldron. A little further along, Canada Place is picture-perfect for photo-ops, watching cruise ships glide into the city, and home to the breathtaking FlyOver Canada flight simulation ride.

Visitors to Vancouver can see the Olympic Cauldron which rests as a landmark on the waterfront of Vancouver, at Jack Poole Plaza atop the Vancouver Convention Centre. The Cauldron, made of steel and glass, will be an everlasting symbol of the splendor of the Games which occurred in the city between February 12th and 28th, 2010 amidst the beauty of the city, sky, Burrard Inlet and North Shore mountains.
Don't miss an unusual monument in Coal Harbour: the enormous jawbone of a blue whale. At almost 7 metres long, the jawbone is the largest in the world and can be found in the Vancouver Convention Centre.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
