8-80 Cities is pleased to release its sixth Make a Place for People report as part of a series of 8 public space projects that we were working on across the province of Ontario. The Make a Place for People project is based on the idea that community participation is key to the creation of vibrant and healthy public spaces. With support from the Ontario Government, 8-80 Cities facilitated a community-led visioning processes to inject new life into currently underperforming public spaces. We were delighted to work with our local partner, The City of Thunder Bay, on re-imagining Paterson Park, located in the city's South Core (formerly Fort William). The document includes useful engagement and public space assessment tools that can be used by any community.
