Spring has arrived and the Garden of Remembrance at the Grange is now flourishing.
The Garden of Remembrance at the Grange was created by Heritage Mississauga and the City of Mississauga’s Parks Department. It is a place where residents are invited to pay their respects to those who answered the call to action throughout our history. Some came home, some did not, but we and the plants and flowers here in Mississauga remember them. Always.
Heritage Mississauga choose a Garden of Remembrance to honour those who have served and those who have fallen because plants have always been the silent witnesses to our history. We give them meaning as they give us meaning. They connect us to our feelings whether of loss, honour, reverence, or remembrance, they connect us together.
Each flower in the garden commemorates the memory of those who were lost with their familiar fragrances, symbolism of hope, strength, perseverance, and peace, and as representations of our allies and citizens around the world who were, and continue to be, impacted by conflict.
We invite you to watch The Garden of Remembrance at the Grange and to take a moment to sit in the Garden to ponder the sacrifices that were made for the freedoms that we enjoy today.
Thank you to the Community Foundation of Mississauga and the City of Mississauga for their support to help us create a place of Remembrance and to commemorate all of those who have served.
