Geocache Description:

high muggle count here; easy access and good parking

Rock Man is actually an ancient symbol named Inukshuk in the Inuit culture traditionally used as landmarks and navigation aids, this grey granite statue representing a human form with outstretched arms is a well-known symbol in Canada of northern hospitality and friendship.

These symbols will soon be plastered everywhere in Vancouver as it has been chosen as the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic mascot. So get you picture taken here now, and we can guarentee that you'll see this guy on every tv channel in every report on the Vancouver 2010 games!

Constructed originally by Alvin Kanak of Rankin Inlet, this monument was commissioned by the Government of the Northwest Territories for its pavilion at Expo 86, and given to the City of Vancouver.

Permanent location of the Inukshuk on this site was sponsored as a gift to the city in 1987 by Coast Hotels through the Vancouver Legacies Programs.

It is maintained by the Vancouver Board of parks and Recreation
