Record Staff – The City of Sherbrooke has announced, as part of the revitalization of the Quartier Well Sud, the creation of a first ‘temporary’ park on its territory to be located on land of the former Maysen Pub, open from mid-July to mid-October.
“The idea of creating an ephemeral park in this area is to bring the community closer to the heart of the Well South District. Here, people will be able to discuss and dream about the development of our downtown area,” explained Chantal L’Espérance, Chair of the City’s downtown revitalization committee, recalling that the members of the advisory committee had called for concrete actions in the short term downtown.
A temporary park is a public space set up on a piece of land or a street right-of-way. The various experiments carried out in several cities and countries have shown that, marked by the identity of a district, these places quickly become meeting places and animation that are accessible and open to all.
