Oakes Garden Theatre 80th Anniversary Rededication Ceremony
Oakes Garden Theatre amphitheatre opened in September 1937. Influenced by the City Beautiful architectural movement of the mid-20th century, this captivating setting was constructed to serve as a grand gateway to Canada for those arriving across the Honeymoon Bridge, and then later the Rainbow Bridge. The impact of the City Beautiful architectural era in Canada can be physically traced through Southern Ontario cities and highways, starting from Oakes Garden Theatre and proceeding right up through the Niagara Region and into the Greater TorontoHamilton Areas.
Between its epic setting, its bi-national view, and its breathtaking, monumental design, Niagara Parks is proud to restore Oakes Garden Theatre and reaffirm its position at the forefront of Canada as a destination and Canadian architectural heritage.
