Crowning Glories: The modernist marvels of Coronation Park

Walk Leader: Paula Simons

About This Walk

Coronation Park in west central Edmonton is home to some of the city's finest examples of modernist architecture, from the Hemingway Pool to the Queen Elizabeth Planetarium to the Telus World of Science to Ross Sheppard Composite High School. Paula Simons is a Shep grad and a current Westmount resident. Join her on a tour of this sometimes-underappreciated park, for a discussion of roles of public buildings and public spaces in the heart of the city.
