Public spaces are an important part of downtown Lethbridge because they provide people with opportunities to come together. They create a social space for everyone to connect.
The City of Lethbridge is committed to enhancing the public spaces in downtown Lethbridge with several upcoming and ongoing initiatives.
A Parklet is a temporary seating area that replaces one or two parking spaces by extending from the sidewalk in front of the business and into the street. Parklets help foster a sense of community by creating places for people to sit, relax, visit and enjoy the city.
