Niagara-on-the-Lake will soon be getting a rainbow crosswalk similar to the one outside Regional Headquarters at Anderson Lane and Niagara Stone Road, adjacent to the community centre.

Last week’s council meeting saw Niagara-on-the-Lake give thumbs up to a Pride crosswalk and five Pride benches scattered around the town.

The rainbow crosswalk will be painted at Anderson Lane and Niagara Stone Road, adjacent to the community centre.


The town polled its residents and found 41 per cent wanted the crosswalk at this location in “Old Town.”

Not far behind at 37 per cent was the intersection of King and Front streets.

The five benches – favoured by 62 per cent of the poll’s respondents – will be installed at Mary and King streets, Centennial Sports Park, the Queenston firehall, Sparky’s Park and Niagara-on-the-Green park.

Thus far, the town has $15,000 dedicated to the projects and is actively seeking donations to finish it off. The town’s diversity committee will be hosting fundraising events to raise the cash for the balance of the costs for the installations.

to the pair currently in Pelham.
