Nelson West has re-painted a bench seat in the Port Hills, one of five that the club built 24 years ago, in 1989.
[This work was done in 2013 – for an update, read down to the bottom of the post.]
The bench at the corner of Abraham Hts and Quebec Rd had peeling paint and graffiti, but now looks inviting again for those wanting to take a break and enjoy the view while walking in the hills.
Three other benches, on Brittania Heights, Princes Drive and Will Watch Way, are all still in great shape. Photos below.
However, we missed this one, which looked rather rustic! A nearby resident contacted us and offered to pay for the materials needed to refurbish it.
The result is below – Thanks, Bernie! and thanks, Murray!
