Gairloch Gardens was originally a farm on the shores of Lake Ontario in Oakville. A small portion of the land was sold off and the new owner landscaped it into a beautiful garden and built this house. It was eventually bequeathed to the town with the wish that the house and land (on the east side of this bridge) become an art gallery and the rest of the land into a public park.
