Exploring The Other Waterfront: The River District
The North Arm of the Fraser River is the city’s other, and unappreciated, waterfront. Industry still occupies much of the shoreline and log booms, barges and tugs make for a fascinating and changing parade of activity.
At the foot of Kerr Street, the view was once dominated by the operations of the Dominion and White Pine Sawmills. But since their closure, and after years of planning, a new community is emerging. On this series of walks we’ll be exploring the River District and surrounding area looking at the planning and history of the edge of the river.
Sundays: June 21, July 19, and August 9.
Meet at the corner of East Kent Road South and Kerr Street 10:00am
Cost: $10.00 (no registration necessary)
