Join us as we explore how Vancouver’s urban environment is shaped – come with us on one of our guided Urbanarium City Tours!
We are living in one of the world’s most fascinating urban environments as can be attested to by the many professionals and academics that come to study our special city recipe. During the tours we will show you the roots, the influences, the successes, and the failures that make up the complexity of what we see here today. Our tours are educational and social, with the ultimate intention of having our residents and visitors feel more engaged with Vancouver and more informed about the role we all play in the city.
Take it easy and let us take you away to explore Vancouver’s feats of urban planning and design by water. Our most relaxing and one of the most comprehensive tour covers many topics: from Vancouver’s inception to how urban planning shaped the density along the False Creek’s edges to how the rising water levels will affect our beloved beaches. The tour is just over 1 hour long and will be in an open air but covered little ferry allowing for an intimate and conversational group experience.
Currently we have 3 dates scheduled:
The tour will start at 6:30 at the Olympic Village ferry dock. It is located along the seawall, north of (behind) Creekside Community Centre and Tap & Barrel Restaurant (we could all head out there afterwards, if anyone’s interested?)
