Summer Solstice Sidewalks: The West End, Images by Rob Grant


Viewpoint Vancouver is asking readers to send in images of their favourite verdant summer sidewalks that transform the walking experience with greenery. You can take a look at fabulous images of summer Charles Street and William Street here.

Vancouverite Rob Grant is enjoying the summer sidewalks of the West End and sends in images of two remarkable places to amble: the first, on both sides of Cardero Street heading north to Robson. Rob notes that there is a pastiche of different buildings, and plantings so intense there is an absence of grass on the boulevards.



The second image Rob sends is Park Lane,  between a 26 storey high-rise apartment building and Stanley Park. Rob says this is “my favourite path to shopping on Denman Street, heading into the park or going down to English Bay for a swim.”

Summer Days.
