The Crescent: From the CPR and the Garden City to Today
May 29, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$15
Landscape Architect and Author, Adrienne Brown, will trace the history of The Crescent from its origin as the centrepiece of Frederick Todd’s design for the CPR’s new Shaughnessy Heights neighbourhood in 1907. Over the past century, the park has evolved from an open space filled with flowering perennials, to an impressive collection of mature trees that includes species found nowhere else in Vancouver. This AFTERNOON talk at Hycroft will be followed by a walking tour of The Crescent. Joelle Sept, Landscape Architect with PWL Partnership, will co-lead the walking tour portion of the event. Limited Capacity.
