Although we were devastated to hear that the 2019 Fun City Festival and its giant waterslide down Lonsdale Avenue was cancelled for the year, spirits were raised after hearing about the Shipyards Grand Opening on July 20 in North Vancouver.

The Shipyards is a unique, interactive, and activity-driven place in the heart of North Vancouver, just a quick Seabus ride from Downtown.

There will be activity and entertainment throughout the waterfront for all ages and you’ll get a first look into the exciting new spaces that will be opening with the Shipyards.
