I’ve been tracking the Stanley Park restoration effort pretty closely ever since the “big storm” a few years ago. Recently they were finally going to complete the Seawall that was badly damaged in parts and had remained that way for almost two years.
Here is a comparison of the lack of work over several months (best viewed large)
Walking, rollerblading, biking or jogging the Seawall is a treat for visitors and residents alike. There’s not much that can compare to a morning stroll along the north-facing side of the walkway with the sun rising and harbour seals swimming alongside you in the inlet.
I’ll be heading back to this spot soon to take a similar photo in order to make sure those repairs are finally being made although this leg of the restoration will last until November, 2008.
