Construction of the new Mikinaak Park in Ball Club wrapped up earlier this fall. The 3-year project, sparked by young people’s vision for a park accessible for people of all abilities, brought the community together and transformed community space into a gathering place welcoming for all. Its name means “turtle” in Ojibwe, one of many cultural elements present in the park.
The kids took a break from landscaping to share their story with ICTV (watch time:10 mins). Read more about the park here.
