A unique walk past Mouat's Tradiing Company, the first general store; the Harbour, home of the float planes and entrance to Salt Spring from the water; Centennial Park, on landfill from dredging the harbour and home of the famous Market; Artspring, our own Art and Performing Arts Centre; the Japanese Peace Garden, in commemoration of the families who were moved from here during the war; the Food Garden and other food carts. Just enchanting.
