Rock Garden History

Once an unsightly gravel pit adjacent to Hamilton’s major point of entry from Toronto, Rock Garden was a centrepiece of an ambitious Depression era project to beautify the entrance to Hamilton. The design focused on a major sunken garden and reflecting pool that has since been abandoned near the corner of Old Guelph Road, and the High Level Bridge.
