#6 - Queen Street Plaza

Queen Street Plaza was the first Pop Up Park in Port Moody. This cobblestone square is known for it’s public art, the cherry blossoms in spring, and lush garden planters in summer. With abundant colourful seating and an oversize sandbox, it has become a gathering space for urban families.

For the Art Shuffle the plaza will be activated by local authors from Tri-City Wordsmiths, art activities with SHARE Society, a DisDaBomb booth by Community Ventures, some of our Street Market artists, and ping pong with Placemaker Communities.

Address: Queen Street Plaza, Port Moody
