The BME Freedom Park, located on the site of the first BME Church in Canada near the Black Mecca exhibit, features many symbolic attributes of the historic site including original bricks from the church in the veneer of the retaining wall. The focal point of the park is a bronze bust of Mary Ann Shadd Cary, an educator and abolitionist who sought to improve the lives of people regardless of race or gender.
