Long Description:
"The Canadian Heritage Garden is a sweeping arc of roses that tells the story of the cultural mosaic of Canadian society.

On the occasion of the 125th anniversary of Confederation in 1992, the assistance of the Canadian Association of Landscape Architects was enlisted to organize a national competition for the design of a rose garden at Rideau Hall. Through the efforts of the Canadian Heritage Garden Foundation, the realization of this unique floral legacy was funded by the generous contributions of individuals, groups and business from across the country.

The Canadian Heritage Garden is the first garden in the world to use roses to symbolize ancestral groups and historical events. It is an interpretation of a formal rose garden, a walking tour of the history of Canada and or our ancestry."

«Le Jardin du patrimoine canadien raconte, avec son arc-en-ciel de roses, l’histoire de la mosaïque culturelle qu’est la société canadienne.

À l’occasion du 125e anniversaire de la Confédération en 1992, l’appui de la Canadian Association of Landscape Architects a été obtenu pour l’organisation d’un concours national pour la conception d’une roseraie à Rideau Hall. Grâce aux efforts de la Fondation du Jardin du patrimoine canadien, les dons généreux de particuliers, de groupes et d’entreprises de partout au Canada ont permis la réalisation de ce legs floral unique.

Le Jardin du patrimoine canadien est le premier jardin au monde où les roses symbolisent des groupes ancestraux et des événements historiques. Version moderne d’une roseraie traditionnelle, le Jardin est une promenade dans l’histoire du Canada et de ses ancêtres.»
