Century Street Parkette is a 0.13 acre parcel of land within Ward 3, situated on the west side of Wentworth St N. between Century St. and Wilson St. The parkette is located on HSR Route No. 12 with the Wilson / Wentworth stop being the nearest bus stop location. The site is also located kiddie corner to Cathedral High School, and is currently being used as a pedestrian short cut for those in the area.
Century Street Parkette is the site of a former municipal parking lot that was established in 1982. The lands have been vacant for the past 15 years with the City agreeing to develop the lands into a parkette in 2015.
The new Parkette will include amenities such as concrete walkways, pedestrian lighting, tree plantings and bench seating. Century Street Parkette has also been identified as a location for public art as per the City’s Public Art Master Plan (Public Art Master Plan). The proposed art piece will be procured through the City’s Call for Artist’s Policy, and will form the second phase (2019) in the parkettes overall development.
