P.S. A little bit of research goes a long way.
Large covered multi-use space that spans 104th Avenue.
Ensures safe traffic flows for pedestrians, bikes and vehicles.
Serves as the primary entrance into the arena complex.
Provides a climate controlled event venue that the public can use.
Provides for a safe pedestrian connection to the Plaza, the arena, the LRT, and the businesses and communities to the north.
The area below the Winter Garden span is an active, walkable area with views into the arena’s functional areas – including a television production studio.
And what part of that list makes it so much more than a pedway?
