“Before it became Vanier Park, this area was first a First Nations fishing village, then a Royal Canadian Air Force station,” explains Simon Robinson, Executive Director of the Maritime Museum. “We are fortunate that the Vancouver Parks Board started managing the land in 1966 thereby allowing the space to become public park land and a cultural hub. It’s quite unique, but sometimes overlooked as a great destination. Today it’s a place where Vancouverite’s can spend the day enjoying the beauty of the park, visiting museums, taking in a play, learning music, or discovering Vancouver’s history.”
Winter Wanderers will also be able to enjoy food from visiting food trucks, performances by Vancouver Academy of Music students, and have an opportunity to win memberships to the three participating museums.
