Central Memorial Park, created in 1911, has been revitalized into a spectacular new outdoor space. Characteristics from the original designs of this Victorian-inspired garden have been renewed, such as the elaborate symmetrical geometrical patterns of its plantings and pathways. The flat geometric design is punctuated with unique vertical ornamental material, such as topiary spruce, grafted weeping caragana and palms. New amenities include a garden-side café, illuminated fountains and two outdoor reading rooms with wireless internet connections. In the early days, this park was the social and intellectual heart of the community and today it is a Provincial Historic Resource.

Bring the Kids!
Summer’s here and Canada’s public gardens are at their best. You know you want to visit them yourself – who wouldn’t want to stroll through a beautiful park filled with flowers – but maybe you feel you’re so tied up with your children or grandchildren you just can’t get away. Well, there’s an easy solution to that: bring them along!
