How cool would it be to say that you walked across an entire city, from end to end? Here’s your chance on Sunday, September 23! Join the Vancouver Public Space Network for a unique adventure, by walking Main Street, *all* of Main Street, from Crab Park on Burrard Inlet all the way down to the Fraser River.
This is not a guided tour, but just an opportunity to share in the communal experience of a cross-town stroll, down the whole of Vancouver’s true north-south spine. Admire the diversity of Vancouver’s beautiful neighbourhoods, from the Downtown Eastside, through Chinatown and Mount Pleasant, all the way down to Riley Park and Sunset. (And cross “I Walked Across Vancouver” off from your bucket list!)
We’ll be meeting at the beach in Crab Park, with a planned departure of 1pm sharp. Estimated walking time – about 3 hours. (And yes, there’ll be chances for coffee and bathroom breaks along the way.) When the walk is over, there is transit nearby to get home, at Main & Marine, or a few minutes walk to Marine Drive Station on the Canada Line.
From water’s edge to water’s edge, this will be a fun, relaxed event. Everyone’s welcome – bring your friends and your cameras, and your most comfortable walking shoes!
