Adjacent to the Queens’ Chambers ­Boulevard Garden Project at the corner of Queens Avenue and Chambers Street is an assortment of concrete furniture and 4 planters provided by the City of Victoria.

After completion of the gardening component of this neighbourhood endeavour, Diane Thompson, a local artist, was selected to paint the furniture with a colourful palate to attract families, kids, and passers by to have a place to rest, jump, and enjoy this newly revitalized area in Fernwood.

With the generous support of The City of Victoria’s My Great Neighbourhood Grant Program, Urban Systems ­Foundation, Diane Thompson, and Michael Hill, City of Victoria neighbourhood liaison for ­Fernwood, we were able to create a space for people to gather.

We encourage others to be inspired to ­create their own neighbourhood space and to drop by our little corner of Fernwood to check it out.
