Brockville Court House Green Artscape
Date and time
This activity runs the duration of Culture Days.
Brockville Court House Green
Directions: Follow King St. to the Brockville Cenotaph at Court House Avenue. Turn north there (simply put, away from the River and uphill). The street leads to the Court House.
Offered in English.
The impressive Courthouse Green has its origin in the traditions of the United Empire Loyalist founders of Brockville, who came from communities with large courthouse greens capable of accommodating town meetings. Today the Green continues to serve that purpose as the site for many city celebrations.
Take a camera, cell phone, pencil & pad or paints and canvas and find a comfortable spot on the green. Now comes the difficult part. Turn 360 degrees and choose your subject, or first subject. The Court House? The Green itself? First Presbyterian Church? First Baptist Church? Wall Street United? The view down Court House Avenue? Or something you alone discern? Honestly a proverbial embarrassment of riches.
