The City of Vancouver and Vancouver Park Board have embarked on a journey to create a values-driven park that connects people to land and water, inspired by and supporting Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh cultural practices –a physical expression of Reconciliation. This presentation described the innovative engagement process with local First Nations to understand more deeply the values and principles that matter to them, how this process is changing the way staff works day-to-day, and how it translates into a living urban park in the heart of Vancouver.
