Private Garden Tour of East Vancouver
On Sunday, June 15, visit a dozen or so private gardens as well as several public spaces that have been 'greened' by East Vancouver residents. This year's self-guided tour will take you into some of the most creative gardens in the Strathcona neighbourhood of East Vancouver. Once you arrive at the starting place for the tour, you will likely be able to walk the entire route. Tickets are $12 per person. Register early, as the tour is very popular and tickets are limited. Purchase tickets in advance at Figaro's Garden or register in advance at Britannia Centre, 1661 Napier Street, or online or by phone to 604-718-5800 (2). On the day of the tour, pick up your map at Figaro's Garden, 1896 Victoria Drive. The tour is jointly sponsored by Britannia Neighbours, Britannia Centre, and Figaro's Garden Centre.
A limited number of tickets will be available at Figaro's Garden at 1896 Victoria Drive on the day (cash only). $12/person
