Event Details

North Vancouver Museum and Archives’ popular summer program is back for another year with free, drop-in, story-filled walks at The Shipyards and in Lynn Canyon Park.

Burrard Dry Dock is one of North Vancouver’s most significant historic sites. For most of the twentieth century it was the largest shipyard in Western Canada and it played an important role during WW II. Join Shipyard Pals on a stroll around this fascinating area and hear stories and songs about both war time heroics and the everyday life of the shipyard workers.  In Lynn Canyon Park the Mountaineer Pals, dressed in historic mountaineering costumes, will entertain visitors with tales of the sometimes dangerous but exciting North Shore mountains. Hear songs and stories about celebrated North Vancouver mountaineers, record setting climbing feats and rescues.

Portraying the Pals are theatre students Marguerite Hanna and Julia Muncs, both from Studio 58, Langara College.

 Free drop-in walks at The Shipyards are offered Saturdays and Sundays at 11 am and 1:30 pm from July 2nd to August 27th. Meet at Lonsdale Ave. and Victory Ship Way. Free drop-in walks in Lynn Canyon Park are offered Wednesdays and Thursdays from July 6th to August 24th at 11 am and 1:30 pm. Meet across from the Lynn Canyon Café.
