Oshawa Valley Botanical Gardens

The Oshawa Valley Botanical Gardens is a unique attraction. It combines the dedicated gardens of the Parkwood National Historic Site with the scenic terrain of the Oshawa Valley Creek Trail system. A collaboration between students from Durham College’s School of Media Art & Design and TeachingCity, this park features a virtual experience for desktop and mobile. Explore the Oshawa Valley Botanical Gardens in person or online through QR codes, virtual tours, and point-to-point trail animations. (For Digital Doors Open, you can also watch the YouTube video below on the City’s Virtual Peony Festival.) This immersive experience brings together the beauty of the park with information on the art, history and contributors of its many sites. TeachingCity brings together the City of Oshawa and its teaching and research partners – Canadian Urban Institute, Durham College, Ontario Tech University, Trent University Durham Greater Toronto Area, and the University of Toronto’s Facility of Applied Science & Engineering. The partners focus on and address Oshawa’s urban issues through innovation, collaboration, applied research and shared experiential learning opportunities.
