Since the launch of Pokémon Go a few weeks ago, all of the public areas around the city are much busier than usual, with “trainers” searching for Pokémon and picking up the necessary weapons to play the game. The legislature grounds are continually full, and people wander back and forth on the Victoria Promenade (100 Avenue, east of 116 Street), as well as the Railtown trail, where 110 Street would be. People love to share their stories and tips with strangers that they meet while playing the game. It will be interesting to see if this remains a popular activity, once the days get shorter and colder, but it’s definitely helping people to discover what’s in their neighbourhood!
