The Bert Weeks Memorial Gardens are named in honour of the former mayor who worked tirelessly to protect the riverfront from development. During his 40 years of public service, including eight years as mayor, Bert Weeks championed the development of nine new riverfront parks, including Ganatchio Trail, Lakeview Park Marina and Coventry Gardens.

Bert Weeks Memorial Gardens features an elaborate fountain with a reflecting pool. It links Festival Plaza on the west to the Joan and Clifford Hatch Wildflower Garden on the east.

Highlights

  • Bert Weeks cascading water fountain, the first water fountain on the eastern section of the riverfront parks
  • Formal and naturalized gardens and trails
  • The Noon Mark, located in the centre of the reflecting pool. The Noon Mark is designed to pay homage to Weeks, who ran a very successful watch repair and jewellery business.
