Long Description:
An elegant fountain adorns the grounds in front of the memorial, this was added as a Centennial project in 1967. A pair of cannons and well landscaped gardens also greet those who visit this special place, as the statue of a young soldier watches over the names of his comrades, resting atop the cenotaph after his long fight with the foe, he leans weary against one of many grave markers from Flander's Fields. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #297 retains stewardship of the park.
