Famed Maple Cottage opens Victorian-style perennial garden
Deputy Mayor Sandra Bussin (Ward 32 Beaches-East York), representatives of
Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation
and the Maple Cottage Garden Club celebrate the opening of a new
Victorian-style perennial garden at the famed Maple Cottage, in Leslieville.

The garden is the result of a successful partnership between Toronto Parks,
Forestry and Recreation, the Clean and Beautiful City initiative, the Toronto
Parks and Trees Foundation and the volunteer-based Maple Cottage Garden Club.
Inspired by Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932) the Victorian-style garden is in
keeping with the theme of an Ontario Worker’s Cottage.

Maple Cottage, restored in 2002, is recognized as the site of Alexander Muir’s
“The Maple Leaf Forever” and the tree that inspired its writing.

Date: Wednesday, June 29

Time: 7 p.m.

Location: Maple Cottage
62 Laing St. (south of Queen Street, east of Leslie Street )

Public Information: 416-392-0750
