Wolf Sculpture Garden

One of the coolest spots in London is at the forks of the Thames, hidden behind the art gallery. It is the Wolf Sculpture Garden — a permanent memorial to Bernard Wolf.

Bernard Wolf and his nephew Norton established the Bernard and Norton Wolf Family Foundation in 1982. The Foundation's support for improving the quality of life in the London, Ontario, community is focused on health facilities, children, culture and the arts. Past support includes: Museum London, The London Children's Museum, Fanshawe Pioneer Village, Gibbons Park, The Grand Theatre, London Health Sciences Centre, and the London Public Library.

The Wolf family has been in London for more than 100 years. Their imprint on the city will last far longer. The Foundation's generousity is downright heart-warming. One might say that the Foundation itself is pretty cool.
