The band shell at Montebello Park


The City of St. Catharines purchased the site in 1887 for the city's first public park, commissioning Frederick Law Olmsted to design the park, who went on to create New York City's Central Park.

A pavilion was constructed foundation of the original Merritt estate in 1888. A covered circular bandstand modelled after the one built for the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York was constructed in the park by Edwin Nicholson, builder of the Henley Grandstand in Port Dalhousie, in 1904.[1]
