About

Square Queen is a public space in the borough of Lennoxville created to promote citizen participation and sustain the vitality of the community. The space is designed as a laboratory for citizen, commercial and community initiatives that will liven up Queen Street with new green spaces and ongoing community projects and events! Our goal is to launch projects of all kinds, with the aim of boosting the sense of belonging to this unique community in the Easter Townships. We welcome projects with a variety of missions: cultural, social, participatory, educational and celebratory! Led by Commerce Sherbrooke via the Explore Lennox project, in partnership with the Familiprix Extra in Lennoxville and the City of Sherbrooke, this initiative to energize Queen Street—the borough’s main commercial artery—aims to support local merchants and organizations, and provide the population of Lennoxville with a place to meet and connect with others, while following physical distancing guidelines. Square Queen is located at 154 Queen Street, just a hop, skip and a jump from the borough office.

Commerce Sherbrooke is leading a consultation process to strengthen dialogue in Lennoxville, working closely with the business community, local organizations and teaching institutions Bishop’s University and Champlain College to inspire and energize the sector. Explore Lennox is the embodiment of this collaboration.
