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?
