THE FALSE CREEK FLATS
Saturday September 10

The Flats have long evolved from when they were filled in by railroads over a century ago. The area continues to change dramatically as they move from muddy industrial lands to a coveted development destination. You'll see everything from former waterfront properties, to developing educational campuses, to potential hospital grounds.

Completed 2016 Walking Tours

April 8th & May 12th - Under the Tent at Christ Church Cathedral
The Gothic Revival style Christ Church Cathedral, in downtown Vancouver has always been an “open door” to the city. As Vancouver's oldest surviving church, its continuous use is intrinsic to its importance as a heritage structure. It was also the first of its kind to transfer unused density rights, in this case to the adjacent site to the north now Park Place, in 1984. Christ Church Cathedral has been encased in scaffold for close to a year as it completes a 20-year restoration and renewal project. On this tour we learned about the complexities of restoring a 120-year-old building and adding contemporary art to a heritage structure. The talk and tour was with a Christ Church Cathedral resident historian, who has worked on all stages of the renovation.
