PARLIAMENT HILL SLOPE STABILIZATION
Rediscovering a historic walk.
The heavily vegetated escarpment slopes of Parliament Hill are an essential part the symbol of Canada's National Capital. They stand as a vestige of pre-urban history and are expressive of civilization rising from and co-existing with “untamed” nature. The mixed tree canopy of the Escarpment still reflects the wild character that the original designers envisioned as “the plinth for Canada’s Parliament Buildings”. This image has been conveyed as the central ideal of Canada: “a democratic government rooted in, and growing out of, the wilderness”.
