The 10-Minute Walk Map

April 6, 2013

About a month ago, I was invited along with several others to meet some students working with the City Studio program.  These are folks working on creative ideas for Vancouver’s Greenest City project.  They were the group that placed the seat and viewing frame on the westside of Commercial and Adanac.

They met with us to discuss an idea they had: to create a map or something similar that would show places of interest in Grandview that could be reached within a 10-minute walk from a central point.  We suggested a lot of places and discussed a range of potential forms that the sign could take.

I went out for a walk this morning and — surprise, surprise! — found that yesterday they had placed their map near the walkway across Salsbury Park, just a hundred yards from my house.

It is an interesting addition to the neighbourhood.
