Trillium Awards

Landscaped garden

St. Catharines has been known as the Garden City of Canada since the 1880s when visitors to Niagara would travel to the city to view the colourful floral displays. Throughout the past 100 years, that tradition has continued. With that in mind, the City of St. Catharines initiated the Trillium Awards for landscape harmony in 1985. The program's mandate is to recognize and honour those who have helped beautify our community.
