Community Lane Revamp

From parking lot to curated public space for connection.

Come hang in the new Community Lane. Located on the North side of stackt market, the updated Community Lane will be divided into three separate sections of enhanced public space. Right off Bathurst, the “Pocket Park” is a vibrant pop-up green space with local art, community gardens, and public seating. The Play Zone features a 3,500-square-foot creative space that includes a community basketball court, public spectator seating, and a radio station broadcasting live segments supporting local talent. The western side of the Community Lane is transforming into a 4,800 square-foot off-leash dog area where guests can sip on a beverage while dogs play.

Pocket Park

Welcoming guests as they enter from Bathurst, the Pocket Park features sprawling green space and public seating, accompanied by a community pollinator garden by Bowery Project and a collection of murals painted by local artist, Julia Mercanti. The space invites community members to come together and celebrate art and connection.

Play Zone

The Play Zone offers 3,500 sq ft creative space to get active and have fun. It features a basketball court with spectator seating, welcoming the public to watch or play. The Play Zone is also home to ISO Radio, a local radio station that runs live broadcasts daily.

Bark Yard

Bark Yard, a 4,800 sq ft off-leash dog area, will soft-open its gates on June 29, 2022 and feature a bar where pet parents can quench their thirst with sake slushies while their dogs can roam freely. Bark Yard will provide an elevated experience for all to come together to meet fellow neighbours, see a unique destination and attend a wide range of weekly events.

The Community Lane will be home to ongoing programming:

Open Tues-Sun, 9AM-11PM.
