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.
