Designing our Cities for Health & Well-being: Creating Cities for All
Community street painting at Ancaster & Flower, in the Woodpark neighbourhood.
A walk for all ages! If everything we do in our cities is great for an 8-year-old and an 80-year-old, then it will be great for all people.
This short walk will discuss and demonstrate how we can modify established suburban environments to make them safer, healthier, and more engaging through small, but significant people-centred design. Join Alice Hutton in a walk through her home neighbourhood as she identifies the challenges and successes in making our neighbourhoods healthy.
Stops include pedestrian signals, street murals, urban intensification, and a community garden. Alice will highlight the leadership, creativity, and innovation of Woodpark residents as well as highlight the ideas behind 8-80 Cities.
There is a video on-line documenting the Woodpark Street Mural Project, which created the mural at Ancaster and Flower Aves.
