Cool Gardens is a public exhibition of contemporary garden and art installations that offer a shift of sensation for the summer-cooling-as a general theme for public projects in the downtown. The exhibit aims to bring architects, designers, landscape architects, and artists together to celebrate contemporary garden culture and the local landscape. The presentation of the cutting-edge garden designs places design culture at the centre of summer activities in Winnipeg and Brandon, while offering a pleasant relief from the summer exasperations.
