150th Celebration Garden Planting, Blue Mountain Park

The 13th Eagle Mountain Guides and 10th Coquitlam Beaver and Cub Scouts were awarded a 150th Celebration Garden, which consists of 1,000 red and white tulip bulbs to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary in 2017.

The 150th Anniversary Celebration Garden is part of Canada’s Garden Route and will celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary as well as the role of gardens in this history of Canada. Led by the Canadian Garden Council, in partnership with Vesey’s Blubs, Canada Post, Niagara Parks Commission and the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association.

The 150th Celebration Garden also features a replica of the Canadian Armed Forces Insignia Badge, which honours all elements of the CAF, including the Royal Canadian Navy, Canadian Army and the Royal Canadian Air Force. It is located at the corner of King Alberta Avenue and Veteran's Way in Blue Mountain Park.
