5th Street Square
East Village’s smallest urban park, 5th Street Square, provides a little breathing room in the middle of a busy day. The neighbourhood plaza at the intersection of 7 Avenue and 5 Street SE invites busy passersby to step off the street and rest awhile on one of the jauntily angled benches or have a quick meet-up with friends.
Tree-lined on both sides, 5th Street Square is the perfect place to stop and and take in the activity of life in East Village. This multi-purpose space also plays host to vibrant community gatherings, such as food truck events, seniors' programs, and holiday festivities.
