About This Project

The project of Nogoshkodadwin Park (in native language: meeting place) was born from the idea to remind the encounter of the natives with the European explorers, on Nepean Point. The fluid and curvilinear shapes, reminiscent of natural elements, with tectonic movements, and geometrical forms representing urbanization are the key elements of the composition. The meeting point in the heart of the park, characterized by the big lawn, is a place for socialization, exchange, and trade. Nogoshkodadwin Park is a scenic and picturesque 21st century park, which would bridge the gap between Parliament Hill, Majors Hill Park, Nepean Point, and Lady Grey Terrace, thus consolidating Ottawa’s riverfront promenade. The project enhances and strengthens the points of access to the park, and makes them more inviting, and universally accessible, thus ensuring an increase in visibility, visitation frequency, and duration of stay, which are some of the main ingredients of any successful park. The park is versatile, fully animated, and holds the potential to offer countless programs and activities, among those the café, the exhibit area and the open-air theatre for summer events.
