The new pride crosswalk was installed Monday on 224th Street by the entrance to Memorial Peace Park in downtown Maple Ridge.

Council approved it in June following the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla.

The city is also having a community barbecue this Thursday in the park, noon to 3 p.m., with a dedication for the crosswalk at 1 p.m.
