Take in the talk of Uplands as a national historic site

Community Association of Oak Bay hosts conversation Nov. 6 at Royal Victoria Yacht Club

Historic Uplands is on deck for the next Community Association of Oak Bay, free Oak Bay Talks event.

Larry McCann, author of Imagining Uplands, illustrates the beauty and historical significance of John Olmsted’s 1908 plan for Uplands and its later development.

Martin Segger and David Anderson, a resident of Uplands, discuss National Historic Site designation and its commemorative meaning.

Anderson was also inspired by McCann’s award-winning hardcover book released late last year. Published by Brighton Press and designed by Lara Minja, the book takes readers from the conception to the planning to the creation of the unique residential park.

The community conversation, Historic Uplands: Oak Bay’s residential park gem, a national treasure, is Monday, Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club, 3475 Ripon Rd.
