New format - still awesome
We're changing the format of Open Streets for 2017. Due to all of the construction taking place in and around uptown Waterloo we are unable to close any streets this year. Because of this, Open Streets will be taking place along the Laurel and Spurline Trails in uptown Waterloo this year.
There will be five distinct nodes of activity along the trail system during each of the four dates.
Node #1 - Green Space beside the Laurel Trail south of Erb Street
Node #2 - Under the Willow Tree at the back of the Waterloo City Centre parking lot
Node #3 - Near the flagpole at Waterloo City Centre
Node #4 - In the laneway next to the Button Factory
Node #5 - Waterloo Public Square
Along the Trail (AtT) - other programming will occur on the Spur Line and Laurel trails
