In-between Places, Exploring the Potential and Challenges of Liminal Spaces in Mount Hope

Sunday May 7, 10-11:30am

Billy Taylor Park, at the tables adjacent to the playground

Same as starting point


This ramble through the Mount Hope neighborhood will look at a series of small semi-public spaces and consider how and if they could be changed to better serve the community. While walking these spaces, we will explore the creative possibilities of underutilised public space as well as the complexity of maintenance, ownership and participation. Stops will include the old Camp Street bus turnaround, a paper street between Knowles and Grandview, and pathways adjacent to Billy Taylor Park.
