   Here is a photo I took of Maureen Kinney , taken at her community garden in July.   She was sharing some of her raspberries with me! She has a section which she inherited from her Mother, who tended it for many years.

 Her Mother is credited for obtaining water & water rights from the city ? —-Years ago. It is located on the Arbutus greenway path and there is a new bike/walkway is being well used by many residents.

 The walkway is near 47th Ave and there is even a “little lending library”!  You can take the walkway from waterfront all the way N to Marine Drive.
