As some of you already know, Leeside has been an ongoing project in Vancouver for over ten years.

For those not aware, Leeside is a DIY project under the Cassier and Hastings connector, this place has so much history and it’s amazing on so many levels: a community built, city supported, 24 hours of light covered concrete painted madness.

LEESIDE: Built with love Built from love.

Leeside has been through many phases which brings us to this one currently nearing the end.

UPDATE MARCH 14th: 
After a checkup today, “The concrete is still dark grey and somewhat soft.”
Leeside WILL NOT be skateable this Monday !!!

Please be respectful of all the hard work and stay off of the park until further update ( mid week, most likely around Thursday)

WE HEART LEESIDE!
