8 Jubilant Man Sculpture at Ireland Park in Toronto, Canada

Ireland Park along Éireann Quay is small and easily overlooked but worth seeing. The main feature is the haunting statues named The Arrival by Rowan Gillespie. They portray a sample of the 38,000 beleaguered immigrants who escaped Ireland’s Great Famine and landed in Toronto in 1847. This silhouette is the Jubilant Man. The ensemble is similar to another one in Dublin called The Departure. That grouping by the same artist shows famine-stricken people stumbling toward ships to escape their plight. You can see those sculptures in the Dublin travel guide on the Encircle Photos website.
