The final design for an exciting, destination-level downtown all-wheel sport plaza was presented to the public at City Council on June 1, 2020.
The new Plaza, which will be located behind the Armories adjacent to the City’s York Street Carpark, complements the dynamic of the College of Craft and Design, the Fredericton Public Library, Officers' Square, and the Historic Garrison District. It will be wheelchair accessible and feature a public art installation as per the City’s 1% Public Art Policy.
The project design was guided by user groups. The overall plan was informed by the Recreation Master Plan, Municipal Plan, Fredericton Growth Strategy, By-law No L8 Respecting Parklands, the Trails/Bikeways Master Plan and City Centre Plan
