Pike Creek is a commercial and industrial district located in the western part of Shoreside Vale, Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.
Pike Creek is based in the industrial areas of Elizabeth, New Jersey. Located here are a hospital, police station and a Pay 'n' Spray. Behind the police station the Pike Creek LCPD Compound. Other services include 8-Ball's Bomb Shop and, in 1998, a flophouse of which media tycoon Donald Love becomes a temporary resident.
Pike Creek is also the location of the Shoreside Vale Import/Export garage, which is located on the northeastern edge of the district.
The building models of the police station and hospital are reused in the games' Portland counterparts (the LCPD police station and Sweeney General Hospital in Portland View). However, the Hope Medical College building is significantly extended in height than the Sweeney General Hospital.

A road in the south-east part of Pike Creek borders over Wichita Gardens, and is erroneously named as such. This can make missions such as Firefighter and Paramedic difficult or impossible in some circumstances as the game thinks the two suburbs are physically located next to each other, and gives the player a very short time span such as 30 seconds or 1 minute to get from one place to the other. Since there are only two roads (not counting a ramp) to the lower section, the player may have to cancel a mission or simply fail it as there isn't enough time to drive down to Wichita Gardens.
