A colonnade of illuminated mast-like structures supports flowering clematis vines that grow up its cables.  Graphics and images located in the masts bases tell the story of North Vancouver in terms of Trees, ships and Wildlife that were once industries and are now recreation. 

The columns on the east side of Lonsdale represent common place attitutes towards Trees, Ships and Wildlife  in the past.  While the corresponding columns on the west side represent attitutes towards Trees, Ships and Wildlife in a speculative future.  

This artwork response and changes with the seasons.  In summer it has a spectacular show of flowers, that dies back in the fall, only to bloom again the the following year.  

Located on the Green Necklace in the City of North Vancouver.
