| ACT Celebration Garden
ACT Celebration Garden is on the Sturgeon River in downtown St. Albert. It's a perennial garden that recognizes the contributions of seniors in Alberta. Lilacs and roses are featured because the province's pioneers grew lilacs on their homesteads, and because we just love roses!
Along the paved walkways, we have bronze plaques honouring Albertans who have achieved, or contributed, in some special way. We also commissioned three artists to design original benches. One is entitled Fallen Branch, another is a snail-shaped bench, and a third is abstract coils of sandstone.
The Associated Canadian Travellers were the Garden's main local funder. ACT received a generous gift from the Alberta Lottery Fund to pay for landscaping and to purchase plants.
When I suggested the Garden to mark the International Year of Older Persons in 1999, I had no idea it would be such a large and successful project. I'm just thrilled with the Garden, and so are the seniors living nearby.
