Description

Walkabouts with John Atkin

Join civic historian, author and heritage consultant John Atkin as he guides walking tours focused on examining the crafted environment in the city and the craftspeople who created them. John has explored Vancouver like few others have and offers an interesting and offbeat insight to the city's architecture, history and neighbourhoods through his walking tours, books, and blog. wwww.johnatkin.com

Chinatown is one of the founding communities of the modern city and with its unique society and clan building architecture, shops offering BBQ pork, roasted duck, tea, fruits and vegetables it is a unique cultural landscape. It is also home to the world’s first Ming Dynasty classical Chinese Garden to be built outside of China. For this event, our walking tour will begin at the Chinese Cultural Centre, explore the architecture and history of the area and will conclude with a tour of the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden led by one of the Garden’s docents. Learn about the intriguing construction methods, the symbolism architecture and plants and the colour of the pond.
