Art Cycle Route Coming to Crescent Heights!

An exciting new pilot project is coming to Crescent Heights and Renfrew! The project consists of three artist-painted crosswalks on 8th Avenue at Centre Street, Edmonton Trail, and 6th St NE, and a series of artist painted bikes along the 8th Ave bike route, spanning from 2nd St NW to 6th St NE, by Calgary artist Yiting Hui. This is part of a multi-stakeholder initiative, Unite the Heights, which advocates for improvements to pedestrian, cycling, and mobility-friendly infrastructure between Mayland Heights through to Crescent Heights.  The goal of the initiative is to increase safety, beauty, engagement, and connection in Crescent Heights and with our neighbouring communities of Renfrew & Mayland Heights.
