I either missed this, or it’s new.

In the triangle where Point Grey Road meets 1st and Macdonald, there’s an inverted stump where someone with good chainsaw skills has made a small folly, suitable for reading or simply watching the cyclists, dog-walkers, runners (and photographers) pass by in a steady stream.

  1. It is the remains of a very large evergreen that the City cut down as part of the changes to Point Grey Road; immediately after the diversion was implemented at Point Grey Road and Macdonald Street, this tree turned brown (distressed, diseased or purposely killed) and was “stumped.” What you see are the remains. I rather like the natural “seat,” that has been created, and it is a very popular roosting spot for families and friends. Too bad that the tree had to go, though.
