The Interpretive Centre
Through arts, culture, and storytelling, the Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre aims to interpret the natural and built heritage of the Lakeshore Grounds and to engage the surrounding community through exhibitions and cultural programming. We focus primarily on themes of education, mental health, Indigenous Heritage, environmental sustainability, and civic engagement.
We are operated by Humber College, under the Office of the Principal, Lakeshore campus and the Faculty of Social and Community Services.

Our Logo Story
A unique symbol of the area, the Passenger Pigeon connects perspectives and stories of the area and embodies the human/nature interaction and symbolizes possibility of redress through knowledge of our histories.
The echoes of Passenger Pigeon wing beats that once filled the Lakeshore Grounds have long been silenced by the passage of time, but the legacy of the bird continues as a symbol of the relationship between people and the natural environment in complex and multifaceted ways.
