As part if its More Awesome Now project, the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association, HCMA Architecture + Design and the City of Vancouver have come together to transform several drab laneways into vibrant, engaging, accessible urban parks. Featuring basketball hoops, a foosball court, and hopscotch. More Awesome Now encourages people to BYOB (bring your own ball), have fun, and make new social connections.

The first Awesome public lane is located south of West Hastings between Seymour and Granville. Check out the photo essay below to see what I’m talking about.
