Kendall Flower Landscape Architecture worked with local First Nations, Métis, Mixed Ancestry, Inuit and the City of Guelph in the completion of a Sacred Fire Circle, located in Royal City Park, Guelph, Ontario.
The Sacred Fire Circle will be used for spiritual gatherings by local Indigenous groups for celebration, prayer, gratitude and personal healing. Designated community Fire Keepers will support local Indigenous groups, using the sacred fire space according to their own unique traditions.
KFLA’s involvement in the project included taking sketch concept drawings prepared by First Nations community members into concept renderings, producing detailed drawings for contractor pricing and providing construction review and contract administration services.
The Sacred Fire Circle space, pathway, seating, storage and signage were constructed by local Guelph landscape contractor – Escape Designs.
KFLA is grateful for the opportunities to learn and get to know community members this lovely project, so long advocated for by the local Indigenous community has provided.
