Fort Needham Memorial Park Master Plan
Ekistics Plan + Design and Halifax Regional Municipality
This year’s winning plan was designed to commemorate the memory and loss of the explosion and ensure a long-lasting recreational legacy for the local community. It is an excellent model of how to integrate interpretive planning together with landscape architecture and urban design. The plan views the park as a living narrative for one of Atlantic Canada’s darkest days 100 years ago. It will guide development in both the park and the surrounding urban community for the next 100 years.
