Edmonton’s kinistinâw Park is featured in the latest episode of Monocle Radio’s The Urbanist podcast, a weekly series that focuses on the built environment and cities we inhabit.
In this latest episode, Monocle’s Edmonton Correspondent Sheena Rossiter is joined by Jill Robertson, DIALOG Partner and landscape architect, Antonio Gomez-Palacio, DIALOG Chair, and Métis artist Tiffany Shaw, to discuss how the park is deeply rooted in community and context, weaving together Indigenous, Chinese, and European history.
