Taking the form of an industrious workshop, Mixlab incubator, and community hub, Makerspace North works with organizations and individuals to develop a city full of makers and creatives by advancing ambitious pursuits. 

Come ready to hear entrepreneurial stories and exploring the merit of shared economy and community. There may or may not be small robots and laser machines....You'll have to come and see! 


Route

Meet at the entrance to Makerspace North, Bay 216 on the second level of 250 City Centre Ave. 

This 'walk' takes place indoors.

Arriving at Makerspace North may be part of your walking adventure. We are located on the second level of 250 City Centre, Bay 216, right above Art-Is-In Bakery.  You may park in the ground lot free for 1.5 hrs with a ticket (you'll need to enter your licence plate number in the parking machine).  Alternatively, arrive by bicycle, walk from downtown, Preston St., or Hintonburg or come by transit (Bayview Station is across the street). Once you arrive at City Centre, you can find our space on the upper level. Most people should park on the ground level and come up the stairs on the south end of the building.  Please see the  map below for your convenience. 

Makerspace North is accessible space. If you have vehicle transportation, have them drop you off on the upper level of City Centre.  For you require close access parking, there are a limited number of spaces available on the second level of City Centre. Take the ramp on the south side of the building up to the second level, and look for Bay 216 “Makerspace North.”   

Parking on the ground level is free but you need to register by putting your licence plate number in the system.
