EHE Ruum 2019 was the continuation of the two-year urban space experiment where we tried to see how the locals adopt the urban square partly closed for traffic as a space for leisure. People’s reaction to the new means for enjoying summer in Paide was highly positive – the central square that usually functions as a roundabout was quickly filled with people. They enjoyed the outdoor cafes, concerts, sports facilities and safe play areas for children. The experiment helped us to understand that locals need such a place. Our plan now is to reconstruct the city square and make a part of the area permanently available for pedestrians.
