Sculptural ensemble, northwest corner of Islington Ave. and Highway 7, in front of the Woodbridge Pool and Memorial Arena, Woodbridge

This raised sculptural ensemble, on the grounds of the Woodbridge Pool and Memorial Arena, can be viewed directly from Highway 7. Two figures, one helping the other, are sited on what simulates a construction site. The large ensemble is landscaped, and with a small pool and benches. While the location of this workers’ memorial was contentious, it is a unique tribute to those who lost their lives working in the construction industry, and an adornment to the community of Woodbridge.
