This 0.36-ha. plaza is located in the Downtown neighbourhood. It was named after the adjacent library, known as the Centennial Public Library from its construction in 1967 until 1996, when it was renamed the Stanley A. Milner Library. Funds towards the cost of this project were donated by Molson Breweries, which marked its 200th anniversary in 1986.
