Another look at an urban oasis. This time the Atrium building in downtown Victoria. http://www.sidewalki...m-building.html

 

Have read and let me know if you think there is another similar spot downtown. 

 

That's good, G-man.  I agree the Atrium is cool, and more people ought to know you can just walk in.

New post up tonight. Have a look at some of the amazing urban art in North Park. I think that through some work with the City would could make this a destination for the art alone!

I am sure that fellow Vibrant Victorians will enjoy this look at the turnaround of the 500 block of Pandora. Hopefully something that will be replicated elsewhere in the city!

Sidewalking Victoria takes on that often neglected place, Pioneer Square in my latest post. Let me know if you some ideas to help enliven the square.

How about some sort of covered gazebo or canopy space large enough for several benches to allow people to enjoy the view of the park even during inclement weather.

It would need to be open enough to discourage illicit activity, which of course is already a reason Pioneer Square is underutilized. Perhaps we could just "borrow" the design of the pergola from Seattle's Pioneer Square.

I also like fountains in parks. I find the sound of running water to be soothing.

I think a gazebo would be great. Some nice old fashioned wrought iron fencing would be nice too. Fountain could be challenging as it would require digging down which could uncover more remains.
