+ Delamont: Kitsilano's Oldest City Block of Houses

Sunday, July 17; 10am to 12pm noon
Tourguide, Bruce MacDonald
Heritage Vancouver Members $10; Non-members $15;
The tour will start and end in the small park at the northeast corner of Arbutus and 7th Avenue

Join local historian Bruce MacDonald for a fascinating exploration of Delamont Park. Delamont/Kitsilano officially began in 1905, the year the neighbourhood was named, streetcar service was extended to Kitsilano Beach and development started in earnest. Amazingly amongst the blocks and blocks of apartment buildings in east Kitsilano is a small group of houses surviving from those earliest years and before. In the same way the Park Board accidentally saved Mole Hill, and the way it saved the pioneer homes below the towers surrounding the West End's Barclay Heritage Square Park, it has also accidentally preserved homes dating from 1901 in Kitsilano's Delamont Park area.

Come and explore unique homes from Kitsilano's pioneer years, with the person who wrote the heritage report on Delamont for its owners, the Park Board.
