Historical walking tour of Sapperton Landing on April 17

A Sense of History Research Services will be hosting a walking tour of Sapperton Landing Park on April 17 starting at 1:30 p.m. This tour marks the 10th anniversary of the park. Participants will learn about the creation of the park itself, which is situated below the former B.C. Penitentiary location, as well as the many historical connections related to the park space and its surroundings, such as First Nations, Glen Creek, Government House, streetcars, railroads, Royal Engineers and royal visits.

Those interested are asked to meet at the corner of Cumberland Street above Columbia Street.

The tour is free, takes about one-and-a-half to two hours, goes rain or shine, and there is no need to pre-register.
