Parc des Anciens-Combattants

Parc des Anciens-Combattants (Veterans Park) occupies the northeast corner of Rue Maclaren Ouest and Rue Georges at the west end of the bridge over the Lièvre River (Rivière du Lièvre) in Buckingham Québec. The twin four inch guns and ship's anchors from H.M.C.S. Buckingham, a river class frigate in service during World War II, provide the focal point to the park.
