Uptown New Westminster Business Association
UBA is a non-profit organization representing Businesses and Property Owners in the designated uptown area. The key purpose of the UBA is to develop, encourage, and promote activity in Uptown New Westminster and to generate revitalization and improvement in the region. We facilitate arts activities, music festivals and performances in the Uptown area, as well as activate and promote local businesses and residents to engage in their neighbourhood in a productive way.
In August of 2019, the City of New Westminster created the Belmont St Parklet as an urban park location. We want to activate and program this urban parklet in order to provide businesses and residents in the area a place to gather and get to know their neighbours. We are also looking at this as a way to pilot programs in the other larger park spaces in our neighbourhood including Moody Park and Queen's Park. The Belmont Parklet is also home for part of the New West Farmers markets and other events in the city.
Parks we work in:
- Moody Park
- Queen's Park
- Belmont Parklet
