Beautiful Alleys is a volunteer run and organized group that promotes safe, accessible and environmentally friendly spaces for people of all ages and abilities. These hidden gems support safe access alternatives to traffic, offer better air quality, increase biodiversity and create options for laneway housing, bicycle paths and even play areas for children.

Do you have a space you’d like to use? Contact us for info on reclaiming your public spaces. No alleys? We’ll help you with parks, greenspaces and neighbourhoods too.

Do you need supplies? We have all you’ll need provided by Keep Hamilton Clean and Green! We follow all the COVID regulations.

Out with the Trash

Safe, clean and beautiful laneways and alleys, that people of all ages can enjoy.

Step one is a Clean Up. Beautiful Alleys plans two organized clean up days: Spring & Fall.

We will also offer support where we can with individual cleanups throughout the year.

Once the alleys are clean – we can help you Add Beauty.

Paint and supplies for alley beautification projects are available in limited supplies.

Limitless Options

Alley Events. Secret Gardens. Colourful Murals.
