We were Downtown yesterday. I wanted to go to Spanky's (only to realize they had closed). So we decided to walk down to Turtle Place as we'd heard they put up a new sculpture. Indeed they did! I love it! VERY Pacific NW!
It's a bunch of outdated equipment from Clark Public Utilities, C-Tran, & the department of the city in charge of street signals. It's to remind us to Conserve, Reuse & Recycle. I think it's absolutely genius, not to mention just plain awesome! The very top is an old street light where the water comes from making it a fountain!
Here is the mural, taken before the sculpture was moved here. It now sits right about where that white pick-up is.
I really enjoy the character that Vancouver has to offer, I don't see myself ever moving from here.
**Keep in mind this used to be a transit center. Much better!!
