title Ardgowan: the Restoration of a Landscape Garden
creator Gribbin, Thomas
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description "We lived about a mile out of town in a house surrounded by grounds laid out with a good deal of taste by my father, who delighted in landscape gardening." This is how Joseph Pope, son of William Henry Pope, remembered their family home on the Mount Edward Road in Parkdale. "Ardgowan," the name given to the estate, reflects W. H. Pope's feeling for landscape, "ard" being Highland Gaelic for hill or height, and "gowan" Lowland Gaelic for the common daisy.
