Scope and content:
Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for the Jim Everett Memorial Park, a neighbourhood park situated between Dalhousie Road, Allison Road and University Boulevard, in the University Endowment Lands (UEL) community land, in Vancouver. Oberlander worked on this project from 2000-2001. The UEL is a unincorporated community located between the City of Vancouver and the University of British Columbia. The park was planned as a recreation space for young families and children living in the University Village, a new village complex of UEL. The plants were also selected to provide interest through out the seasons with varying vegetation and flowers, and ensures low maintenance.

The project series includes design development drawings and working drawings, including landscape and planting plans, presentation panels, and a presentation model. The series includes also photographs of the park during construction and once completed. The project is also documented through correspondence with clients and consultants, a project proposal by Oberlander, specifications and a contractor tender, concept notes, documentation for research, meetings notes, inspection reports and financial documents.
