What a fabulous day for a walk! Shorts and T-shirt weather — for me at least. There were about 50 or more people who showed up at Britannia for the Jane’s Walk of Grandview, a walk that was also sponsored by the Museum of Vancouver, Spacing Vancouver, and the new Grandview Community Planning process.
The Walk leaders were Dan Freeman and Marta Farevaag. They began with a review of the Britannia Centre and the old Britannia High School (the views from which were destroyed by the “concrete bunkers” that were added to the older building in the 1950s) and then moved on to Grandview Park. We walked a short section of Commercial and then headed east into the residential sections. The group discussed Victoria Park, the Jeffs House renovation, and the earlier conversion of the old Miller house “Kurrajong”.
It was a fun walk and I was exhausted by the end of the second hour. I did manage to hand out a lot of flyers about my own walk in June — that was worthwhile!
