CHIEF KEN ALBERT MEMORIAL PARK CONCEPT PLAN
Client: Norway House Cree Nation
As part of ongoing efforts to address the problems of social disengagement, isolation and the high incidences of unacceptably poor health facing their community, Norway House Cree Nation’s Chief and Council engaged MFA to produce a concept plan for a large park designed to encourage physical activity among its residents.

Although very “conceptual” in nature, the plan puts on paper some of the ideas for amenities that have come from the community in order to generate interest and enthusiasm for the potential long term development of the site (with a 10 to 15 year horizon in mind).  The main objective is to encourage community members to go from seeing “what is” to “what could be”.
