The Town Square is a gathering place for the community and hosts regular Garden Market days during the summer months. In addition, we have regular community events, fund raiser barbeques, musical events and celebrations of all kinds. The Town Square was developed on the previous site of a bulk oil operation and local gas station, as well as an old garage that was formerly used as a reptile zoo. Due to previous operations the area needed to be reclaimed with very little soil disturbance.
It is an on-going, development by the Town of Eastend in collaboration with the Tourism and Economic Development Board, the Garden Club, and the Communities in Bloom Committee.
The Project included the development of the "Out Door Market" and floral beds. Construction of public washrooms and building of benches, 3 pergolas and additional self-watering hanging and ground planters. Planting of trees and perennials. Future plans include the installation of a sundial and a rock garden.
In 2019, in collaboration with the Eastend Public Library, the Town set up a piano in the Town Square as part of the "Play Me I'm Yours Street Pianos" movement which is seeing pianos installed in public parks, squares, railway stations, streets, airports in places all over the world.
The Town of Eastend has won 2 awards from Communities in Bloom for the Development of the Town Square: 2017 Special Mention, and in 2020 an Environmental Action Award.
