Park Royal Mall South (Photos: by Mavaddat Javid)
After the first year of IB studies and life in West Vancouver, its clearly been the most challenging regarding school, but living here in West Vancouver has been pure bliss.
Beautiful Park Royal Shopping Centre/Ambleside is a short walk for me. Having a part time job there is great and dropping by for a game of chess. I’ve been eagerly awaiting the chance to share this news of the magnificent chess space that Park Royal Management has so generously provided for us.
We are all clearly grateful to have this space. Park Royal had the first permanent chess area in a shopping centre in Canada. We had chess from 1984-2006 with inlaid chess tables… and now this beautiful space 2017.
CHECK IT OUT:
But bigger than this is a girl and women (the women first greatest) recognized here for playing the game of chess. This makes me proud.

More pics of the players in action in the new area will be added shortly.
