For EXPO ’86, GRACE McCARTHY, the Minister of Transport at the time, contacted all multicultural groups in Vancouver, to construct park-like areas along the new Sky Train route. In the German-speaking community, the GERMAN-CANADIAN CONGRESS founded a working group known as the “Parkway Committee”, which pursued this idea with a great deal of initiative and enthusiasm.
In August 1992, all of the former Committee Members were invited by Ursula and Eugen Neubert to discuss to upkeep of the space and to raise donations, resulting in the founding of the GERMAN CANADIAN HERITAGE PLAZA COMMITTEE.
