Pop-up plazas

Temporary pop-up plazas are one of the steps the City is taking to help residents and businesses adapt to living and operating through a pandemic by repurposing road space to give people more room to resume community life and access local businesses.


In partnership with Business Improvement Associations, local businesses, and communities, we’re creating temporary pop-up plazas to help businesses reopen and give residents more public space to enjoy in their communities.

These plazas will give people space to eat, visit, rest, or enjoy the weather while maintaining a safe distance from each other.

City staff will work with the partner businesses and organizations to make sure spaces are properly maintained, inclusive, and comfortable.

    On June 12, we installed our first pop-up plaza at E 27th Ave and Fraser St. We’ll be installing more in the coming weeks. Ongoing monitoring, along with public feedback and guidance from the Provincial Health Officer, will help us improve these spaces over time. It will also help us determine whether any of these temporary plazas should remain in place after the recovery period.
