Join members of the Burke Mountain Naturalists and the Riverview Horticultural Centre Society for a special free guided tour of the outside portions of the heritage buildings and the tree collection at Riverview, plus a short detour into Riverview’s wilder “backyard” area. The tour will last about two hours, depending on weather and walkers’ preference. Dress for the weather, and wear comfy shoes or boots. Walks go rain or shine. Dogs on leash are welcome.
Meet on the uphill side of the Henry Esson Young (HEY) Building. Banners and signs will be in place to lead you through the site.
Riverview Hospital is located at 2601 Lougheed Highway, Coquitlam: To reach HEY building take Holly Drive through the hospital grounds, then go uphill on Oak Crescent, and the HEY is on your right on Kalmia Drive. Find parking, and meet at the front door.
