Pride of Canada Carousel

Pride of Canada Carousel

The Pride of Canada Carousel is the centrepiece of the Remington Contemporary Art Gallery, an unprecedented public art collection featured throughout our Downtown Markham project.

The Pride of Canada, commissioned by The Bratty Family Foundation, consists of 44 rides, each an individual sculpture made from recycled materials that represents a story of Canada and also sustainability. Created by Patrick Amiot, a Canadian artist renowned for his ‘junk art’ and lovingly painted by his wife, Brigitte Laurent, the Pride of Canada made its public debut on Canada Day 2016. Since its opening, it has hosted nearly 1 million riders.

Open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., the carousel is located at 8080 Birchmount Road across the street from the stunning Toronto Marriott Markham Hotel.
