In 2020, as Covid-19 took hold, a group of community members, supported by the Convivial Cafe, organized several music events to lighten neighbourhood spirits.
In 2021, in response to a request from community members, the City installed a temporary popup plaza, providing an outdoor space for people to gather. With picnic tables, umbrellas and planters, the empty, run-down space started transforming into an attractive, neighbourly space that provided an open invitation to sit quietly or engage with others. Once again, the square was filled with music on Saturday afternoons and people hosted other events and activities.
Now, in 2022, the plaza is here to stay and music and other events are being planned. Check other areas of this website to find out what is going on and how you can help.
