Fun facts about New Westminster:
- New Westminster is British Columbia’s first capital and the oldest city in western Canada.
- New Westminster was destroyed by the Great Fire of 1898. One-third of the city, from Royal Avenue to the waterfront, had been ravaged, and the lower, westerly portion known as the Swamp (Chinatown) had been completely swept bare.
- The site of “New Westminster” was chosen in 1859, partly for military reasons, as it was on a steep hill on the north side of a wide river – thus more easily defended.
STAY TUNED FOR our inaugural local tourism challenge!
The challenge is in fact a scavenger hunt around the city of New Westminster best completed by bicycle.
