City Square Plaza

Regina’s City Square Plaza is a controversial space for a lot of different reasons – for me the three biggest are that it was massively over budget, cars and pedestrians share the space which in my opinion is a recipe for disaster, and the architectural features are ugly.  Don’t get me wrong, I actually think the plaza is a good idea, I just have issues with the execution.

There are now food trucks on the plaza, salsa dancing lessons on Thursday nights, noon hour entertainment, and of course, the Farmer’s Market on Wednesday and Saturday mornings now has a tonne of space (plus the Night Market once  a month on Thursdays was an awesome idea) – so the optimist in me hopes that in time it will evolve into an even better space.  And, in the right light, it does look sort of nice… I took these with my iPhone on Tuesday night at about 6pm.
