Vancouver’s public spaces – our plazas, squares, streets, laneways, pathways and waterfront – are where public life happens. These places and spaces are where we interact with the city on a daily basis, as we work, study, shop, dine, experience cultural events, and gather with family and friends. Public space is where we connect with the city and where we connect with each other – it’s where community is created.

Downtown is the heart of our city. With its distinctive skyline, exceptional views, 24-hour cultural and shopping activities, and distinctive neighbourhoods, Downtown Vancouver has an authentically unique sense of place. That said however, the main attraction is the people. Vancouver’s Downtown is home to diverse and multicultural communities, a wide array of residents, businesses and employees, and attracts visitors from near and far.

Currently, there is no comprehensive strategy that provides guidance on the planning and delivery of downtown public spaces. Starting summer 2017, the City of Vancouver is looking for your feedback on how to fostering exceptional, vibrant and memorable public spaces, places and experiences in the downtown peninsula. This area includes the Central Business District, Coal Harbour, West End, Downtown South, Yaletown, False Creek North and Northeast False Creek.

Through Places for People | Downtown we hope to create the Downtown Places and Spaces Strategy, which will provide a strategic framework to shape a vibrant public space network and coordinate public space delivery in the downtown.

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children, to earn the approbation of honest critics; to appreciate beauty; to give of one’s self, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived–that is to have succeeded. Ralph Waldo Emerson
