Monsters for Beauty, Permanence and Individuality is an open-air art installation by Duane Linklater that you’ll encounter along the Lower Don River Valley Trail in Toronto. Created in 2017, it contains 14 gargoyles cast from concrete.

The intent of the sculptures is to “focus attention on the Lower Don’s role in Toronto’s industrialization, while sparking a larger conversation regarding ongoing Indigenous and colonial occupation of the city”.

I really like them, and it’s also great a place to stop and enjoy your sandwiches while doing the trail.
