    We have been there in the summer, last July and this month January. Very different weather, but still SO beautiful! Summer was full of greenery and flowers. Winter was wet, mossy with very green grass.

    Love it here for a quick walk around before exploring the rest of the park. The whole thing takes 30ish minutes to slowly walk through and take pictures but maybe an hour if you really take your time.

    What a surprise to see no one has added a comment since I was here about a year and a half ago. Must be Covid, because this neighbourhood has not lost a step or a vibe. The new construction that concerned me in my last report appears to be blending in well, and has not affected the general atmosphere. People continue to dress like they want to, and fresh food markets outnumber candy stores. I noted a few USA license plates along the way, and it occurred to me: travelers - if you miss Haight-Ashbury, I bet you'll have some recall if you drop by here.
    Very cosmopolitan, great restaurants, bars, and boutiques. Tourists, please take the Skytrain from downtown so you can spend an afternoon.

    We wanted to try a baseball game experience during a recent visit to Vancouver - there was a great atmosphere at the Nat Bailey Stadium. The Vancouver Canadians put on a great show!
    Family friendly atmosphere, easy to get drinks and snacks during the game too. We travelled via the Skytrain and the stadium was easy to find.

    An unexpected gem. This is really a very interesting museum not only about the history of the Vancouver police department but about policing. Great exhibits. Really well done.

    Located near the eastern end of False Creek, this is a great example of architecture from the railway age (about 100 years ago). Only a few paces from the Skytrain Station, so take a moment to a look at this piece of history before resuming your bike/hike.

    Went on a day that wasn’t too busy but still crowds, just smaller crowds.
    Have to say that $20 admission is definitely not worth it. To boot, food costs are just excessively overprice. No longer able to see the grand prize home, just able to see one room and pictorial facades of rest. Kinda Zzzzzzz. Went through this in about 2 minutes. Prefer the days when the line ups were long but you got to see the entire house. Even though we grew up in Vancouver and have been regular PNE visitors, in recent years it’s been feeling like a tourist grab and just gouging all around.
    We enjoyed one of the outside shows, Flying Fools and the bandstand area had some students playing ABBA music which was relatable. Also, there was lots of seating which is a plus.

    Parking in $25. Most places do not take cash.
    Market Place and Food options are great!
    Shade areas to eat are near the Farm building.

    Even if you are not a motorcycle guru you will find this exhibition an amazing collection of Harley Davidson motorcycles that cover decades. Some real oldies in pristine condition. Nicely displayed with staff who are extremely knowledgeable. The exhibition is upstairs from the main floor area offering all the latest Bikes and clothing. The exhibition is by donation. Not to be missed. Yes. You can take photos. Well I did.
    Loved it.

    This end of Vancouver is probably where I would want to live, if I lived here. It just seemed less congested, had nice parks, was serviced by mass transit, and just looked so clean and pleasant.

    We took the False Creek Ferry here to the Science World stop and got out to look for anything remaining of the Olympics. But, after the Olympics, the area went through a massive redevelopment and all the temporary Olympics events and places were dismantled. Progress stops for no one.

    Things get really crowded and hectic around Granville Island and it was so refreshing to find some peacefulness out this way.

    If beer is your thing then this is the place to go. An amazing array of beers on tap. You order your beer and food at the bar, don’t try to order directly from the food truck parked inside the space.adjoining store has all the the cans on offer. Highly recommended for anyone on a Vancouver beer crawl.

Thank you Cultch and Soft Cedar and all artists and contributors and all who pulled that performance together in COVID conditions. Appreciate the effort of the Cultch, Soft Cedar to support the arts through COVID.
