Whether you’re just visiting or you’re a long-time resident of Vancouver, it’s a great way to see the city and learn something new about Vancouver.

Grandview from Commercial Dr to Clark Dr – April 20
Straddling industrial, commercial, and residential precincts, this fascinating area has been rarely explored. Displaying the transitions that continuously transform its built heritage, explore how artists have played a significant role in making the area more habitable, while demographic pressures have impacted the residential landscape. See how some individuals have chosen this area to make their statement, whether it be cultural patrimonial or other.
Meet in Mosaic Creek Park (corner of Charles St. and McLean Dr.).
