Waterfront Productions

Shipyard Sal and Sam have a new look!

Bond rallies, variety shows, and tug-of-war competitions are just a few of the ways Burrard Dry Dock (BDD) employees fundraised for the war effort. Shipyard Sal and Sam will regale you with stories, songs and poetry, as they describe first-hand, what it was like to build 10,000 tonne Victory Ships for war. Listen to songs, participate in rivet-toss demonstrations, and giggle at quick costume changes!

Max and Molly, Mountaineer Pals

Climbing achievements and logging history are just two of the themes that our Mountaineer Pals will explore with visitors to Lynn Canyon Park on most rain-free Sundayafternoons through July and August. Stationed across from the Park's Rangers Station and the cafe, their displays and equipment are a great bonus to all Park visitors.
