How did it all begin and how did this place become such a runaway success? Can we sustain it? From a mere sandbar in False Creek to one of Canada’s most visited destination, the island was shaped with audacity both as a landform and as a unique place in our city. The 1.5-hour walking tour will explore this microcosm of our city’s planning.
