Douglas College walking tour explores downtown New Westminster—then and now

Construction of the Douglas College New Westminster Campus.
Join Douglas College Geography instructor Earl Noah for a fun and informative walking tour on Saturday, May 2 at 1pm.

The walk will focus upon the historic and contemporary landscape of Downtown New Westminster. It will explore the changes and, hopefully, memories and experiences, of the participants in some of the schools.

A short walk around Douglas College may occur at the end of the field trip. Among the questions to explore are: Why is Douglas College here? How has the educational landscape changed since the 1860s? What are the recent changes?

The walk is part of the Jane’s Walk project. Jane’s Walks are free, locally organized events that bring people together to explore and appreciate their neighbourhoods.
