Garden of the Provinces

The retrofitted Garden of the Provinces is a shining example of universal accessibility in the heart of the nation’s capital. Built originally in the 1960s to celebrate Canada’s centennial, the site required updating to ensure all visitors could enjoy its multi-tiered garden and fountain. L+D’s design solution seamlessly integrated access ramps into the existing space, respecting its historical elements as mandated by the Federal Heritage Review Office. Our team delivered a finished product that provided equal accessibility for challenged and non-challenged patrons alike—without disrupting the aesthetically pleasing nature of the site.
