The annual West District Great Gardens Contest was held between mid-May and
July 4, 2003. All gardens were nominated for consideration by local residents
and visitors to Toronto. Gardens were recognized in four categories:
Residential - Traditional, Residential - Environmental / Alternative,
Commercial and Industrial, and Other Properties.
Residents and businesses participated from Wards 1 and 2 (Etobicoke North),
Wards 3 and 4 (Etobicoke Centre), Wards 5 and 6 (Etobicoke Lakeshore), and
parts of the former City of York East and West areas. All gardens were judged
from mid-July to the end of August on a variety of criteria including design,
use of plant material, garden condition and maintenance, hard landscaping,
environmental practices, community contribution and distinction.
The Great Gardens Contest is a successful partnership between Toronto Parks and
Recreation and the Horticultural Societies of Etobicoke, Roselands and Westway.
The 2003 contest was sponsored by the Old Mill Inn and Plant World.
