Each year the Leaside Garden Society presents an award to a business, institution or apartment building that has in our opinion made a special effort to beautify the neighbourhood with landscaping and/or plantings. Photos of several contenders are judged by the board and a winner is chosen.
This year the winner of the Leaside Garden Society’s Community Garden award is Leaside Gate, 955 Millwood Road. The award was presented at our annual general meeting on November 8th. This year, Leaside Gate had a magnificent display that got better and better as the season progressed and surely brightened up anyone’s drive along Millwood.
In addition, Leaside Gate won the third prize in the High Density Residential category of the city wide Toronto Garden Contest.
In the recent past, Leaside Garden Society winners have included SAHIL, 1387 Bayiew Avenue, Crestview Apartments on Leacrest Road, and Marant Construction on Wicksteed Avenue. Every time we present the award the recipient appears delighted and surprised!
