North Shore Community Spaces

Publicly accessible spaces are important for building communities that are better connected, more vibrant, and more resilient.

These spaces are integral for creating inclusive communities. They foster intercultural communication by increasing opportunities for residents to connect with one another.  Publicly accessible spaces also provide room for meaningful connections among those with shared experiences and contribute to improving their sense of belonging within the larger community.

The following database lists organizations with spaces for use by those who live, work, and play on the North Shore. It was created with the intent of fostering community connections and informing the North Shore community of spaces that may be available for use. It is not an advertising platform, nor an endorsement of organizations or spaces listed.

To get detailed information about the space and availability, please contact the listed organizations individually.
