Queen Elizabeth Park is a jewel of green in the middle of our city. In the 1950s some visionary people at the Vancouver Parks Board planted a beautiful arboretum and we can appreciate their foresight today. There are many water features in the park, some rock outcrops, lots of unique plant and tree specimens and some very tall older conifers. We will discuss the human history of the area before and after settlement.
Rain or shine. Please wear footwear for possible slippery surfaces.

NOTE: "Earth Walks" are created by community leaders for the False Creek Watershed Society - a non profit group. We are very lucky to have these knowledgeable people lead us. We would love to have you join us. However, we ask that you please register for the walks only if there is a very good chance you will be able to join us, as numbers are limited. Thanks and hope to see you there!
