PARKS AND RECREATION
Ornamentum's Spring/Summer issue is here!
The parks and playscapes discussed in this issue act in many roles, from the recreational uses of early rural cemeteries to the preservation and fostering of Chinese cultural identity in Vancouver’s exquisite Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden to les Jardins de Métis (Reford Gardens) on Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula and Toronto’s Space Age park architecture from the 1950s-60s.
Children are the intended users of playgrounds and playscapes, but the ones reviewed by Alex Smith have plenty to delight adults too. Finally, this issue concludes with something fun for everyone: Aefa Mulholland’s history of the snow globe—those small, encased landscapes of fantasy and memory.
