Living Lane

Welcome to our new pocket plaza: Living Lane

The City is creating a pilot pocket plaza, and we want to know what you think. Help us make this space your place!

We’ve temporarily closed off this laneway, located at 100 BLK E 1st St Lane, to create a community gathering space. The PLAY team recently hosted two community feedback events to gather input from neighbors and community members. This feedback will help inform the design of a unique new community space. Renovations are estimated to begin Spring 2019.

Stage one of the project features seating, planter benches, and jazzed up barricades which will be left during the winter months.

What do you want to see here, do here, or make here? Questions or ideas, connect with us at

Big thanks to the Lower Lonsdale BIA, Big Pete’s, and The Profile for their support on this project.
