2021 Winter Update
We would like to thank everyone who provided feedback on the new pop-up plazas in 2021.
In 2021, we tested six new pop-up plaza locations. City staff collected feedback, monitored the plazas, and engaged with community stakeholders. Based on our evaluation process, four plazas are extended through the winter.
- Kamloops St and Hastings St
- Maple St and W 4th Ave
- Leg in Boot Square
- Sasamat St and W 10th Ave
Next year, we will continue to make small improvements to these pop-up plazas.
Rain-Friendly Pop-up Plazas
In December 2020, we installed rain-friendly pop-up plazas under the Cambie Street Bridge. We received a lot of positive feedback on the plazas as they enabling residents to be outdoors in rainy weather.
We have installed a second ping-pong table at both Coopers' Park (Cambie Bridge North) and the Neighbourhood Energy Unit (Cambie Bridge South). Many local residents are enjoying the weather-protected plazas to get outside and enjoy a game of ping-pong with friends and neighbours. Keep an eye out for little libraries, which will be added to these locations over the winter months.
