Edmonton is one of the largest northern urban centers in the world. Located in Canada, Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta. The city has a strong history as a trade center, and it served as the last major stop for the Klondikers during the Gold Rush. This is why we Edmontonions call our city "The Gateway to the North"

Please enjoy my perspective of one of of the fastest growing urban areas this side of China.

Oliver Peace Park and Community Garden

The History: Prior to 1914, 103 ave was known as peace avenue. The Garden was purchased from the Catholic School Board in 2008.

I sat in the initial meetings where we discussed what kind of green space the community wanted.

The park has a series of raised beds that allow the seniors in the surrounding assisted living complexes to garden as well. The large rock was to be a water feature... I'm not sure what is happening with that.
