Vancouver’s Cambie Street bisects through the centre of our city, weaving together various facets of daily urban life, while also mirroring similar development pressures in our Regional District and elsewhere. The City of Vancouver acknowledges the importance of the Cambie Corridor as a significant aspect of a sustainable, livable city comprised of neighbourhoods, amenities and services. Notable in the City’s Cambie Corridor Plan is its focus on creating the largest area of growth outside of Downtown, doubling the area’s population while also adding over 30,000 homes.

Beginning at the meeting location, we overlap aspects of Westerkamp and McCartney’s 1997 soundwalk in Queen Elizabeth Park, another audible marker of historical sounds and experiences that echoes through the present into the future. Our walk concludes with an invitation to play, listen and contemplate at Myfanwy MacLeod and Shannon Oksanen’s public art installation Playtime, near the intersection of West 29th Avenue and Heather Street.
