Garden of the Provinces and Territories
This patriotic park is the epitome of all that is Canadian. A graceful green space accessible to all, the Garden of the Provinces and Territories is decorated with the flower emblem and coat of arms of each of the ten provinces and three territories. The focal points of this park are two beautiful fountains, their unique design a representation of the five Great Lakes and Canada’s vast forests. Located right across from Library and Archives Canada, this park is shielded by lush trees, making it a beautiful and relaxing stop to inspire visitors with an appreciation for our country’s unity. Dramatic lighting highlights the proud emblems after dusk. During the Canadian Tulip Festival, visitors can also enjoy a beautiful backdrop of bright flowers
