Green Fix for Pockmarked Landscape
Pop-up park at Five Corners a temporary item
City Crews were spreading top soil for a new green space at Five Corners.
t doesn't cost a bundle to throw down some dirt and grass seed and make something greener and that's what City Hall is doing at Five Corners.
Over the last few years, large chunks of Chilliwack history have been knocked out of the once-historic downtown. The Empress Hotel, the Paramount Theatre are just stories now. Next came the Irwin Building and it too has vanished and the site scraped clean.
On Tuesday, crews were busy patching the latest wound at the city centre with a green bandage by inserting a temporary pop-up niche park on the site. In fact, the park is so temporary that it won't even be named.
But, it will have artwork.
