This exciting project will revitalize the Uptown Keswick Parkette, located at 2 The Queensway S., in Uptown Keswick. This project will turn an underused urban parkette into an inviting and inclusive space for the community and local businesses.
COVID-19 restrictions have showcased the importance of inclusive, accessible and welcoming outdoor spaces for people to gather and host events. The Keswick Parkette is located in the Town’s historic business centre, so this park will be a space for residents to gather and support local businesses in Uptown Keswick.
This parkette will feature:
- A new multi-purpose shelter with power outlets to support community events and performances
- Accessible seating throughout
- Concrete plaza and gathering space
- A public art installation featuring indigenous art
- Other improvements to beautify the space.
