The Bentway Grand Opening Event - Staging Grounds
The Bentway is hosting an opening event for it’s newest infrastructure project - Staging Grounds. The project involves new experimental gardens under the Gardiner, leveraging rainwater run-off from the highway above to feed flowering plant species below.
The grand reveal of the project is going to be an exciting (and highly visual!) one. First Deputy Mayor, Ausma Malik, will kick things off with opening remarks. Furthermore, there will be chances to conduct interviews with the talented design team behind the project, SHEEEP and Agency—Agency. And there will be plenty of opportunities to capture the enthusiastic community members and The Bentway supporters who will join us for this momentous revelation.
