Well, I seem to be in the minority. I have read with interest the several letters to the editor regarding the Kew Gardens restoration.
When the plans were first introduced, I was skeptical and negatively critical.
Now, however, seeing the completed project, I have nothing but praise and admiration for the design, plantings, and general aesthetic appeal.
On the first unseasonably warm day in late winter, I was delighted to see so many people sitting in groups or alone on the new benches enjoying our release from hibernation – a true community feeling existed.
Currently, the spring plantings are impressive and they herald the summer flora that will follow.
As for the ‘gate’: I think it is stunningly impressive with a most appropriate sentiment.
In my opinion, this restoration enhances the beloved park and Queen Street East.
