Vancouver respects native culture in scheme for Downtown Park. Vancouver’s parks generally are clueless about their native history. Stanley Park which had an enduring First Nations village along with a longhouse near Lumberman’s Arch, entails scarcely except decontextualize totem poles and sporadic tours underscoring earlier utilizations and conventional plants.
There is nothing particularly left to brand the site of Squamish village that supposedly survived near the south end of Burrard Bridge. However, a contemporary downtown park on the northeast shore of False Creek could effectually turns towards a different path.
A longhouse, a canoe docking area and a position for exterior commemoration with a bon fire are a few proposals that park planners are contemplating for 4.5-hectare Northeast False Creek Park succeeding the premiere manifesto was discovered missing as it lacked honoring the area’s utilization by native groups.
Catarina Gomes, the lead park planner for the area said that they wanted to design a park that is motivated by native tradition as contrary to a park that entailed only native elements. This park should exude an aura of welcoming space as it had then welcomed them.
She further vociferated that the authentic scheme entailed a more unassertive involvement of native culture, segments of art, textures and patterns inscribed into the pavements into the park. The discovery led to finding of the fact that they required retrieval to the water where they could convene cultural exercises and there was also requirement for an expanded space that can include a fire, welcomed by vegetation and a big house ruminative of Coast Salish culture.
