Veterans Commemorative Park

I think this memorial doesn't get very many visitors as it is well off the beaten path. You could easily drive past it and not even notice it. The Veterans Commemorative Park lies in the circle formed by the on and off ramps to north bound highway 416 from Rideau River Road. (Highway 416 is named the Veterans Memorial Highway. I don't know if I'll be able to photograph it for this blog.) There is a car pool parking area just off the on and off ramps and an access path to the park.









THIS PARK IS DEDICATED
TO THE MEN AND WOMEN
OF THE CANADIAN ARMED
FORCES FOR THEIR SERVICE
AND SACRIFICE ON

WAR AND PEACE.
