Nugu Brings design-led, sustainable dinnerware to North America
Here mansions slowly give way to Pacific Spirit Park—which is second only to Stanley Park in Vancouverites’ green-space heart—and the UBC campus itself is rapidly changing with new, pricy condo towers popping up faster than kids are graduating. Nearby 10th Avenue still has some old-time feel and a few spots—like the Rajio Public House—that inject collegiate cool into this staid ’hood. Still, a stroll along Jericho Beach or even clothing-optional Wreck Beach will be all you need to see why people clamour to live here.
A Life-Science Lover’s Day In
Beaty Museum, 2212 Main Mall

Evening Paddle and Tour
Ecomarine, 1300 Discovery St.
Book a chillaxed guided Nature Kayak Tour ($69) and spot bald eagles and harbour seals while splashing around Jericho Beach. Tours run every Friday evening from June 15 to September 7.

There are plenty of ideas about what should—and shouldn’t—happen with the Jericho Lands, a former Department of National Defence site now jointly owned by the Canada Lands Corporation and three local First Nations. But one thing is certain for the prime 36-hectare site, located west of Alma between West 4th and 8th avenues: it will eventually be redeveloped, and when it is, it will reshape some of the city’s westernmost reaches.
