In a ceremony held today, The Niagara Parks Commission was pleased to rededicate the awe-inspiring amphitheatre, Oakes Garden Theatre, in celebration of the venue’s 80th anniversary.
Oakes Garden Theatre and its associated Rainbow Gardens are outstanding examples of design and architecture created to specifically act as a dramatic gateway to Canada. Influenced by the City Beautiful architectural movement of the mid-20th century, the venue was first opened to the public with an original dedication ceremony held on September 18, 1937.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
A ceremony to mark the official re-dedication of Oakes Garden Theatre in Niagara Falls will be held Monday.
The 4 p.m. event will showcase the recently completed restoration work at the Niagara Parks landmark and includes a Canadian Citizenship ceremony.
