Today's sketch is of the Haywood Bandstand that sits in Alexandra Park in the West-end of Vancouver. This bandstand is used during the spring and summer to hold free concerts. The concerts usually take place on Sunday afternoons from 1:00pm to 3:00pm, with the following Saturday as the scheduled date should it rain on the Sunday. The bandstand built in 1915 is controlled and serviced by the Vancouver Parks office and sits in the park triangle formed by Beach Ave / Bidwell St / Burnaby St. Please excuse the photo of the sketch, I just could not get the contrast and details to show that are in the actual drawing.
