Mckay Street Park Design Event

Tell the designers for the Mckay Street Park what you think of their designs! After meetings with local youth and community members, there are 3 main design ideas for the park that will be shared at the event.

 

 

Your feedback will help decide what the park will look like!

DATE: September 14th
TIME: 3 pm – 6 pm
PLACE: In front of KAPs office (‘free store’) at the M’akola Mckay Street Housing development

**If you are unable to make this event, please be advised that we intend to have the display set up in a variety of locations around town, and are considering distributing an online survey as well. For a link to the online survey, check out our Facebook Page

We’d love to see you at this event – the whole community is welcome. Come out and share your opinion on the design concepts. These designs were developed by collecting feedback from local area residents and also through ideas collected from the Placemaking workshop held in January. With your feedback, this is a major first step in transforming the Mckay Street park into something magical for the neighbourhood and the community!

Once the designs are finalized, the next step will be to work as hard as we possibly can to get more sponsorship. We’d like to thank our current sponsors for the design portion of the project — DP World, the Port of Prince Rupert, Redesign Rupert and the City of Prince Rupert, as well as the designers–City Repair, Communitecture, and Caitlin Pope Daum Landscape Architecture for all of their hard work in making our ideas come to life. Not only that, but we’d like to thank Northern Saving Credit Union, BG Canada, and Northwest Community College, for helping to bring Mark Lakeman to Prince Rupert for the talk/workshops provided in January.

One more big thank you to our steering committee, who have helped push forward this project from the outset – Kaien Anti Poverty Society, the Bahai Fellowship, Prince Rupert Early Years, Salmonberry Trading and the Ministerial Association for your input and support (Phewph! Sorry if we’ve missed anyone!). This is truly a team effort, and we can’t wait to get moving on making this dream a reality.

Hope to see you there!
