Share your vision for the future of ByWard Market’s public spaces


The ByWard Market is an important place in Ottawa, and the City wants to improve its public spaces. We want the Market to remain a popular destination and an iconic place in Ottawa, and we need your ideas.


Staff is launching a public realm study to create a vision for the network of public spaces in the ByWard Market, including streets, sidewalks, parks, squares and plazas. The study will establish a plan to guide future improvements to the ByWard Market’s public spaces, and also set out strategies and partnerships to enliven key public places. Our goal is to beautify, connect and enhance the public spaces, and make them inclusive, safe and inviting.
