Arts & Culture
Arts and culture are critical components of healthy, strong and vibrant communities; MacDonald Island Park is committed to contributing to the community through arts and culture initiatives designed to meet the needs of residents. Home to the Kirschner Family Community Art Gallery and the Mi Dance Academy, MacDonald Island Park also has a collection of public art pieces located at the TOTAL Aboriginal Interpretive Trail.
We encourage and promote creativity by providing opportunities to explore the arts!
