History trail explores Gladstone family involvement in the slave trade

November 28, 2022

"A new history trail for Gladstone Park will be unveiled this November to mark the International Day for Remembrance of the Abolition of Slavery."

"The history trail is in addition to the horticultural commission The Anchor, The Drum, The Ship (2022) which was installed in the park during Black History Month this year. Gladstone Park was named after former British Prime Minister William Gladstone whose family-owned plantations in the Caribbean and whose father received the largest compensation payments made by the Slave Compensation Commission."
