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.

We rely on Team Up to Clean Up to provide adequate supplies of bags and gloves to support our organized cleanups and on City Waste Management to collect our efforts. Additional supplies, refreshments and volunteer appreciation are dependent on grants and funding. In 2023, the Ward 3 office generously committed an annual budget amount to supplement expenses relating to volunteer appreciation.

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.

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.
