Brief Description

Semisch park functions as a pedestrian corridor with a play area and spectacular views to Burrard Inlet and downtown Vancouver. The park is composed of two areas to the north and south of West 2nd Street. The City of North Vancouver will be making improvements to the park area to the south of West 2nd Street and the West 1st Street park entrance. The overall aim of the project is to upgrade the existing infrastructure, improve accessibility, and create new engaging play opportunities. The public art project created for Semisch Park will deliver bold visual impact, create a socially engaging park element that sparks dialogue and intrigue and provide ongoing interest and relevance for park users. It is envisioned that the public art project could be designed as a playful element incorporated into one of the park entrances (1st or 2nd Street) or integrated with another aspect of the overall park design.
