What is the Public Realm?

Beautiful, comfortable, safe and accessible streets, parks, open space and public buildings are a key shared asset. These public spaces draw people together,creating strong social bonds at the neighbourhood, city and regional level. They convey our public image to the world and unite us as a city. They set the stage for our festivals, parades and civic life as well as for our daily casual contact. Public space creates communities.
