Mt. Pleasant Heritage Hunt

Thank you for joining Vancouver Heritage Foundation this summer for our first Heritage Hunt!

This family-friendly scavenger hunt explored the historic area of Mt. Pleasant. Participants toured the neighbourhood at their leisure or followed a suggested walking route with our illustrated guidebook. They learned about the neighbourhood’s incredible heritage places and answered questions at points of interest along the way, then submitted their answers online for a chance to win fantastic prizes from local businesses.

This fun, laid-back, outdoor event is suitable for all ages and proceeds from the Heritage Hunt support VHF’s educational programming, special projects, and schools grants.

Stay tuned for future updates!

Happy Heritage Hunters

The Heritage Hunt was so fun, I really loved exploring places in the neighbourhood that were new to me! – Ashley

You have no idea how much I enjoyed the Heritage Hunt. There are some lovely buildings in the area, and the hunt made me look at them in much more detail. I also got to appreciate some of the history of Mount Pleasant. – Susan

We enjoyed our walk, seeing places we often pass by in the car and never noticed. – Deb

My roommate and I loved the Heritage Hunt and had a great time looking for the clues. – Molly
