See Bears, Camels, Sculptures, Mosaics and more. The City of North Vancouver is inviting citizens on a free public art walking tour on Saturday, September 28, at 11 am.
North Vancouver has more than 150 pieces of Public Art telling the story of the city’s unique culture and history. Public art can be found in libraries, along nature and public walkways, in parks and shopping plazas, each piece an original work creates to reflect North Vancouver’s local heritage, culture, and environment.
The free guided tour will give citizens the inside scoop on approximately 20 of the over 150 pieces in the Central Lonsdale area.
A trained volunteer ambassador will take citizens on the art tour that will last approximately 1.5 – 2 hours. The tour is open to adults and children.
Participants must be able to walk at a comfortable pace for about two hours. While the tour is free registration is required and drop-ins are not allowed.
If you are interested, meet at the Bronze Horse in Victoria Park at Lonsdale and Keith and the tour will loop back to the same area. Contact Meh at (604)983-6345 for more information.
