Gates Of Craigleigh Gardens

Craigleigh Gardens is one of Rosedale's secret gems. It's slightly hard to find, nestled in the maze of Rosedale's streets, but that's the beauty of it. I've always admired these gates to the gardens. Apparently, the gates were once the entrance to the grand home of a man named Edmund Boyd Osler.

The plaque on the gate reads:

"These gardens are presented to the people of Toronto as a memorial of Edmund Boyd Osler, and Ann Farquharson, his wife, by their children, A.D. 1926. Here, amidst his children and grandchildren, his flowers, trees and birds, Edmund Boyd Osler made his home from 1877 to the date of his death in 1924 A.D.".
