Located in the heart of Niagara University's tree lined campus, the Binational Heritage Peace Garden covers approximatly 750 square feet of space with flowering trees, perennials, annual plantings, and topiary shrubs. The garden includes brick walkways and benches placed to allow for quiet contemplation. Views of the Niagara River Gorge and Canada, both within a few hundred feet of the garden, make for a relaxing atmosphere. Restroom facilities and lunchtime food-court dining are available at the Gallagher Center, directly across campus roads from the garden. Plantings are designed to be at their peak in early summer.

CELEBRATING OUR CROSSBORDER HERITAGE
The Leamington Peace Garden was designed by the horticulturalists working for the Municipality of Leamington. A variety of local and international plants and flowers will be selected. The garden is approximatly 500 square feet and is situated in the main entrance to the Marina.
WAR OF 1812 CONNECTION
General Brock camped at what is now called Point Pelee National Park and then sailed by Leamington on his way to Amherstburg. Leamington's bicentennial theme is "Waterways to Peace" which exemplifies the significance of the Great Lakes during the War of 1812. The Leamington Marina is an outstanding facility that offers docking and events on the shores of Lake Erie.
