Home Place

Home Place is located on the north side of Alex Robertson Park.

It is a structural design by Canadian artist, Dorsey James. The different designs of the structure symbolize a variety of time periods, cultures and beliefs, drawing in visitors from all over.

The most recognizable of these structures is the hydro pole arrangement atop the hill. The poles grow in height toward the centre, acknowledging individual growth as well as the growth, evolution and prosperity of the community.

The Home Place Sculptures have been a popular waterfront attraction since its official opening in September, 2001. Visit the website to learn more.
