Pop-up parks are temporary parks that transform derelict lots into vibrant, usable spaces the whole community can enjoy. YK Pop-Up Park HAS semi-permanent landscaped areas and public installations created by your neighbours and friends. The idea is that, seemingly overnight, we have created a communal space downtown that everyone can enjoy.
Ecology North, in partnership with the City of Yellowknife, has built a new park space and ran a city-wide pop-up park Ideas Competition in the empty lots between the Gold Range Hotel and the Raven Nightclub. Working with the community and for the community, we hope to bring more colour and joy to the downtown core.
