Winston Square

Nestled between the Royal Canadian Legion and the Dairy Queen is an urban community space to sit outside, or to take in various events that Westboro has to offer – Winston Square. Read about the 2015 opening of Winston Square here. 

In 2017, the Winston Chandelier was installed as public art project. Created by Adrian Göllner and Joanna Swim, it is inspired by the natural environment and local institutions surrounding Winston Square.  The Kitchissippi Times covered the unveiling and gives a great breakdown of what you can see in this public art.

Westboro Village BIA is booking activities and events for this urban space that will draw the community and beyond into the heart of Westboro. In previous years, Winston Square has been used for small performances, and as a stop on the West End Studio Tour.  When booking Winston Square in 2020 and 2021, we are working within all public health guidelines. We encourage the use of a facemask in Winston Square if you are unable to distance from individuals not from your household.
