BLOOD-ALLEY SQUARE

Northwest of Carrall & Cordova, Vancouver, BC

Tattersfield & Associates Landscape Architects

1973


Blood Alley Square was named by city planners during an era of increased awareness of Vancouver's early heritage in the late 1960's following the rejection of Project 200 on the waterfront. A few years later, the city embarked on a comprehensive redevelopment of Gastown that included this block. Tattersfield & Associate's design for the space features brick and cobble paving, retaining walls, and generous tree plantings. Today the tree canopy is over 50 feet high, and many of the bollards are gone, but otherwise the square is largely unchanged.
