The City’s VIVA Vancouver initiative – and its partners, TransLink and the DVBIA – have created some new temporary public space initiatives.
Robson pedestrian plaza
Experience an eclectic mix of food on offer by our street food vendors and enjoy a seat right in the middle of the street (June 23- July 16).
Granville pedestrian weekends
Every weekend from June 23- September 3. Stroll along our vibrant street and watch buskers or participate in some of the cool on-street programming, like swing dancing lessons .
Every Thursday in July. Don’t be shy! Bring your own lunch or buy something from a local merchant and come sit on the street with your working neighbours.
Where: 300 Abbott Street.
St. George St on-street mural
It may be painted but it’s not over yet. Check out the beautiful first ever mural painted on a street at St. George Street between E 8th + E 7th Avenues.
New in 2011 but here to stay! Vancouver’s first ever public curb-side seating structure on E 14th Ave at Main Street.
Public curb-side seating structure on the 1000-block of Robson Street. After a long day of shopping, sit back and people watch!
