Imagine Jasper Avenue
‘Framing’ Jasper Avenue as Edmonton’s Main Street
June 29 to July 22, 2016
To help ‘frame’ the section of Jasper Avenue from 109 Street to 124 Street as Edmonton’s premier Main Street, the Imagine Jasper Avenue project has partnered with CITYlab and local artist Naomi Pahl. Together, we have created three interactive metal frame public art pieces. These frames invite the avenue’s users to look through them and start imagining what Jasper Avenue could be like as a Main Street.
Look through the frame - take a picture - and ask yourself: ‘what do I currently see?’ and ‘what do I want to see?’ Post your picture and your comments to Twitter or Instagram with #ImagineJasperAvenue and tag @CityofEdmonton.
We want to hear from you! Jasper Avenue is your main street - become part of the conversation!

About the ProjectCreating a new Jasper Avenue
Jasper Avenue is Edmonton’s main street, connecting the West End to Downtown through the historic and diverse neighbourhood of Oliver. The section of Jasper Avenue from 109 Street to 124 Street it slated for full reconstruction beginning in 2018. This presents the opportunity to develop a comprehensive vision for the avenue which will direct the design of improvements and upgrades. The purpose of the Imagine Jasper Avenue project is to envision an innovative, vibrant and relevant streetscape that will strive to balance the needs of the community, commuters, businesses and visitors.
A renewed Jasper Avenue will provide a safe and pedestrian friendly street that will establish a unique sense of place that fosters lively street life, diversity, growth and transformative land use.
