BEFORE AND AFTER FREDERICK TODD
The park at the centre of Macdonald Gardens commemorates the graveyards of four congregations from 1845 to 1873.
This lecture will reveal how landscape architect Frederick Todd designed the park as part of capital landscape planning in 1912, while 1970s urban renewal reshaped the larger community. Today this evolving neighbourhood in Lowertown East remains a uniquely diverse illustration of the city’s landscape, housing and institutional history.
