Hyack Square


A wonderful urban plaza and cultural hub!

Hyack Square, renovated and re-opened in 2009, was designed as a legacy project to provide New Westminster residents and visitors with a Spirit Square to celebrate the City's 150th anniversary and to create a place to connect the community and display public art.

On October 4, 2014, Hyack Square became home for the Wait For Me Daddy monument that was immortalized in bronze, a Canadian Mint Coin and Canada Post stamp.

Hyack Square attributes include public art and seating, landscaping that incorporates trees, grass, flowers, river rocks, planters, ornamental shrubs, brick paving stones, wooden boardwalk, decorative screens, signage and children's water play area.

Hyack Square is about connecting people with people and connecting downtown to the waterfront with a pedestrian bridge.
