Once again we’re committed to our ongoing green initiative, so expect to see the Canada Day Team Green out in full force keeping our beautiful Inner Harbour clean. Keeping with the green theme, the free bike valet service offers a safe place to lock up bikes for all who wish to leave their cars at home.
