Want to hang out?


Activating space is what we do. The Erie Downtown Partnership facilitates placemaking activities to enhance and activate downtown’s built environment and public spaces.  These initiatives are centered on optimizing safety, cleanliness, façade improvements, public art, wayfinding, and events. We plan events and gatherings at some of the city's most amazing places like Griswold Park, Dobbins Landing and Perry Square. Our city and downtown benefits from all of us getting out into our public spaces.
