Kinistinâw Park is an under-utilized open space located in the community of Boyle Street. As the centrepiece of The Quarters Downtown, Kinistinâw Park is envisioned as an inviting and safe urban park.
The design of Kinistinâw Park reflects the past, present and future stories of the community, encouraging everyday enjoyment and special opportunities for celebration and gathering.
