Art Cycle Route Coming to Crescent Heights: Volunteer to Help Paint!

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. 

The exact dates are tentative but we are aiming for painting to take place on weekends starting in mid-August. We are welcoming neighbours of all ages to participate and contribute to this project – there are many ways you can help! You can:

  • Volunteer to help paint
  • Help clean painting supplies
  • Supply a power washer and/or water for it
  • Provide food/refreshments for volunteers
  • Make a block party out of it!
  • Any other ideas are also welcome!

For more information or to let us know how you would like to contribute, please contact sharon@crescentheightsyyc.ca. Be a part of this new exciting community-building project!

Thanks to the Federation of Calgary Communities’ Activate YYC grant, the Calgary Parking Authority Sponsorship, and the Crescent Heights and Renfrew Community Association.
