Working with the property owner (Suncor), the neighbourhood is now able to use the lot at 243 Henderson as a community space. Reimagine Elmwood cleaned up the lot, applied a fresh layer of asphalt, and we’ve installed picnic tables, benches, a stage, planters and flowerboxes. We’ll be doing other work in stages over time, as resources permit, including fence repair, entrance arches, wall mural, and more!

In addition, our community partner organizations will be hosting events here all summer long, such as concerts, outdoor movies, markets and more!

We’ll be posting photos and event announcements here as they are confirmed!

Confirmed events so far:

  • May 13th, 2024: Official ribbon-cutting! Join us for cake as we celebrate the grand opening of the space!
