2. Neighbourhood Amenities

With the RCH as the healthcare anchor, the surrounding Sapperton neighbourhood provides a broad range of amenities that makes the area an attractive, livable, sustainable, and economically vibrant place that attracts top talent to the area to live, work and learn. Key initiatives to achieve this include: creating a ‘Great Street’ on East Columbia Street, living by the “5-minute walk rule,” setting high-quality urban design guidelines, making space for 24-7 childcare, and building multiple health, wellness, and outdoor activity spaces within the neighbourhood.
