Here’s a date to put in your calendar, as a new people-friendly place officially opens.  Just in time for Pride events such as the Davie Street Gay Block Party on July 29, and the Festival and Parade on the 31st. The plaza is at Davie and Bute in the West End.

It’s a part of the West End Community Plan. And it’s a terrific addition to an already richly interesting neighbourhood.

The plaza is named in honour of long-time LGBTQ activist Jim Deva.
