About one third, or an acre, of the site located at the end of Salter Street, next to Bishop’s Landing, is converted into green space as a temporary use called Sands at Salter.
Sections of Sands at Salter were phased in, including grassy and sandy areas, creating an urban beach feel, green space for people to take part in leisure activities, new seating and nearby parking. The boardwalk on both sides is connected to the extended portion and the area is now home to additional seating through a ‘Free Lab‘ project. The site is also the venue for signature events such as the Halifax Jazz Festival.
