Depave Paradise at Seaside Park Planting Event

Location:
Seaside Park
Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada

Date & Time:
June 11, 2022 | 9:00 am - 1:00 pm (Local Timezone)

Event Summary:

Help us complete our depave paradise project at Seaside Park on Saturday June 11th! Let's transform pavement into green space! In 2021 we removed over 100m2 of unused pavement at Seaside Park and now we will be planting the site with native shrubs and flowers. Depaving is a great way to help restore urban areas which are predominantly pavement and asphalt. The Depave Paradise program, coordinated through Green Communities Canada is an opportunity to remove unused or damaged pavement and replace it with green space. This is the first depave project to take place in Saint John, New Brunswick and we are thrilled to complete the planting phase with help from our wonderful volunteers.
