Councillor Sarah Doucette (Ward 13 Parkdale-High Park) will be joined by the riding’s MP Peggy Nash and MPP Cheri DiNovo as well as other dignitaries for a public parade, remarks and community activities to celebrate the 100th anniversary of High Park‘s Howard Memorial Gates.
- Dedicated to John Howard in recognition of his gift of High Park, the gates on Parkside Drive at High Park Boulevard were officially opened on March 19, 1914 to commemorate John Howard’s deeding of High Park to the City of Toronto.
“The distinctive limestone and iron gates in the centre of the image are surrounded by other prominent High Park features, including Colborne Lodge, John Howard’s former residence, the Jamie Bell Adventure Playground and peacocks from the Zoo.”
- Also, this project has been supported by the Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage Program, Department of Canadian Heritage.
Here’s the itinerary.
