Meet at entrance to Robson Public Market in Vancouver’s West End

The West End contains a mixture of distinctive building styles representing successive eras of growth and change. One of the directions from the West End Community. Plan calls for the creation of a ‘heritage stroll’.

In support of this direction, Heritage Vancouver is conducting a walking tour along Cardero Street in the West End. Join Holly Sovdi, City Planner for the West End and Heritage expert Anthony Norfolk to explore the dynamic mix of heritage styles in this area.

The tour will explore opportunities to realize Cardero Street between Robson and Davie Streets as the West End “heritage stroll”, recognizing the area’s architectural and historically significant mix of buildings and mature street trees. A number of issues concerning retention of significant buildings of all eras will be raised for discussion. The discussion will also be focused on possible improvements to the sidewalk space that could make the ‘stroll’ more enjoyable, comfortable, and accessible.

The walk will begin at 10am at Robson Market and finish about two hours later at Cardero and Davie.Please join us after the tour to continue the discussions over lunch at the historic Sylvia Hotel (not included in ticket price, but please let us know at info@heritagevancouver.org if you plan to go for lunch so we can make reservations).
