Unveiling our Cultural Master Plan

The Cultural Master Plan is a comprehensive roadmap for programming and stewardship at Waterfront Park, ensuring inclusivity, equity, and cultural vibrancy. It honors the stories and histories of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities, creating a welcoming space for all.
