International Friendship Gardens

China Pavilion

Our city's multicultural heritage is showcased at the International Friendship Gardens. Located in the city's south end adjacent to the Chapples Recreation Complex, this 15-acre park was organized by the Soroptimist Club as a Centennial gift to Canada and the City. Residents of various ethnic origins created the unique garden and monuments representing 18 ethnic groups. Find a shaded parking spot and take a stroll among the gardens and displays.

These gardens are a popular site for wedding ceremonies & photos.
