Whether you’re a downsizer or part of a growing family, Walter’s Place in North Vancouver has what you’re looking for: a peaceful setting that’s only moments away from all manner of neighbourhood and natural amenities.
The building is situated on a secluded cul-de-sac in the heart of Lynn Valley, so street noise is minimal and privacy is optimal. If residents take just a short walk down the road, they’ll find themselves surrounded by retail shops and services, cafes, restaurants, parks, a yoga studio and the new Lynn Valley library and civic plaza — to name just a few nearby amenities.
If you’re looking for that iconic rugged North Vancouver lifestyle, you’ll be pleased to note that Walter’s Place is nestled between the forested slopes of Mount Fromme and Mount Seymour. Other natural surroundings include Lynn Headwaters Regional Park, the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve and Lynn Canyon Park, whose main attraction is the famous Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge.
“Where on this globe would one find such a desirable setting to live, and enjoy the freedom it offered?”
You know who said that of North Vancouver’s Lynn Valley? The man who Walter’s Place is named for: local historian and pioneer Walter M. Draycott.
Born in 1883, Draycott moved to Lynn Valley in 1912. After clearing the land, building a house and developing a large garden, he left to serve in the First World War with the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry.
Returning to his home in Lynn Valley in 1918, he published his first history of the community the following year and later designed a war memorial tablet for St. Clements Anglican Church. He served as a Justice of the Peace from 1923 to 1975 and was a school trustee for three years in the 1920s. He conducted nature hikes for students up the Lynn and Seymour valleys and was an informal historical resource for the community for much of his life.
In 1972, as an honorary member of the North Shore Museum and Archives Committee, he was asked to officially open the first Museum and Archives building. Two years later, he was presented with the first Lynn Valley Good Citizen of the Year award. Besides Walter’s Place, he’s also been honoured by his community in the names Draycott Road, Draycott Place, Draycott Park and Draycott Gardens. Indeed, his pioneering spirit embodies the natural surroundings and rich history of the Lynn Valley community.
