A project to rid Sandy Hill of some of its pavement is back on this fall.

The Sandy Hill Tree Group is working with the city’s Neighbourhood Connections office on a pilot project that aims to de-pave three city-owned areas along Somerset Street – replacing some existing asphalt with perennials, shrubs and trees.

Sandy Hill Tree group member Sabrina Matthews said the group wants to make the street, which is now a popular cycling and pedestrian route thanks to the Adawe Crossing in Strathcona Park, a beautiful site to see and be.
