The Canadian Garden

In 1995, it was the Canadian Support Committee’s turn to create its own garden...

Designed by twelve students of architecture from the universities of Montreal and Ottawa, the Canadian Garden encourages reflection.

The low wall lists the name of the 122 Normandy communes liberated by Canadian soldiers. The black granite slab is inscribed with Virgil's words: "Nulla dies umquam memori vos eximet aevo" (no day will ever erase you from the memory of time).
