LEES+Associates (with Groundswell Planning, lead consultant) were retained by the Kwanlin Dün First Nation (KDFN) and the Government of Yukon to develop a Master Plan for two adjoining parcels of land in the Range Point Neighbourhood of Whitehorse, Yukon.
LEES+Associates worked closely with team members to prepare mapping for the overall neighbourhood master plan, as well as concept graphics for open space improvements including park spaces, trail connections, recreational features, and site amenities.
Our firm prepared conceptual design for the central neighbourhood park space and a pocket park incorporating distinctive placemaking features reflective of Kwanlin Dün cultural and heritage values. Graphically appealing concept plans and before and after renderings were developed to communicate the proposed designs and neighbourhood character.
Park elements include traditional plantings, a natural playground, a gathering space/fire circle, pathways, viewpoints, and interpretive elements.
