This fountain is one of two Canadian-themed artworks located on the terraces of the Garden of the Provinces and Territories in downtown Ottawa.
Tree Fountain was created for the Garden in 1962 by Montréal architect and designer, Norman Slater. The six-metre-tall stainless steel structure evokes the form of a tree, symbolizing Canada’s majestic forests. The floral emblems of the provinces and territories are inset in the stone balustrades nearby.
The other fountain is Emil G. van der Meulen’s Great Lakes Fountain.
