|Description & Services|
|Information||Visitors are invited to experience the park, which is situated on Vale Road in the South end of New Glasgow.
The park, opened in 2000, bears the inscription “to our children” and was created to commemorate the past, focus on the present and provide a foundation for the cultural future of Nova Scotians of African descent.
At the heart of the park is the pyramid-shaped design of the building, which symbolizes the pyramids of Egypt. Each side of the building represents a portion of the history and migration story of the Black community in Nova Scotia.
