Lower Lonsdale Discovered

This year’s summer social takes us on an exploration of the lower Lonsdale area of North Vancouver.

Lower Lonsdale is a historic waterfront neighbourhood in the city of North Vancouver. Lower Lonsdale runs up Lonsdale Avenue from Lonsdale Quay to Keith Road. Its history is inseparably connected to the lumber and shipbuilding industries on the North Shore of Burrard Inlet, as well as ferry crossings connecting the area to Downtown Vancouver. Lower Lonsdale is currently going through large waterfront renewal processes. The old shipyards are being torn down, making way for new public spaces, condominiums, retail outlets and a hotel.

John Atkin, historian, will guide us on a walking tour of the waterfront area to look at the old, the preserved and the new. We will end the tour at the Tap and Barrel for some refreshments.

Parking can be challenging so consider taking the seabus.
