The Jevremovac Botanical Garden is the botanical garden of the University of Belgrade and also a surrounding urban neighborhood of Belgrade, Serbia. The garden is located in Belgrade’s municipality of Stari Grad and is an administered by the University of Belgrade’s Biology School. This is in our opinion most interesting are Japanese Garden.
In 1964 Moriyama & Teshima received the commission to design a science centre to celebrate Canada’s 100th birthday. Construction was completed in 1967, and the Science Centre was open to the public two years later, on September 26, 1969. The Science Centre was a pioneer for its hands-on approach to science. Unlike a traditional museum, where exhibits are for viewing only, the majority of the exhibits at the Science Centre were interactive, while many others were live demonstrations. Our grandkids were really enjoying it, check it out:

Yesterday we joined fire parade “PARKTOPIA”, with a hand-made lantern parade, shadow puppetry, live music and extraordinary visual images. This was performed on the Ward Island, part of Toronto Islands, with Shadowland Theatre’s Ward’s Island. This theatrical exploration of parks for essential community spaces offers families a tranquil respite from urban intensity. Ward Island is a part of a narrow low-lying peninsula, which for thousands of years prior to European colonization, was used for ceremonial gatherings and as a place of healing by Indigenous peoples of Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation and Chippewas.
