Save the Parkade is a group of New Westminster that was formed as a response to the city’s plans to tear down the Front Street Parkade. This group has a variety of reasons why they feel that removing the Parkade would do more harm than good, including environmental, economic, and other reasons. They propose alternative ways to repurpose the parkade, such as building a park on the top level, or using the existing structure to build noise barriers.
