Saturday, November 28th – A Virtual Stroll: Poking around the back lanes of Point Grey
10am – 11am
Register here, $12
Known for its sweeping sea views and beaches, West Point Grey has a rich history that extends beyond its historic homes to its back lanes. Interesting and sometimes forgotten spaces inhabited by garages, garbage cans and overgrown vines, lanes are places where an original geography of hills and valleys hides in plain sight. Join us for a virtual walk with local historian, author and seasoned walking tour guide, John Atkin, to explore the hidden world of Point Grey’s lanes and discover a few surprises along the way.
