Vancouver’s West End has changed immensely since it was transformed in the late 1800’s from a forested serenity into an exclusive middle and upper class neighbourhood on the outskirts of our growing urban centre. This area of Vancouver has continued to change and develop, though its roots as a wooded peninsula cannot be forgotten. This soundwalk seeks to listen for the distinct murmur of nature and the area’s history, inseparably woven into this vibrant, diverse, walkable, and densely populated community
