On June 8th, 2013, a dedication ceremony was conducted on this site following a three year restoration and expansion project of the cenotaph area. This project was completed through the joint efforts of the Town of Carleton Place, Veterans Affairs Canada, and Branch 192 of the Royal Canadian Legion.

This park is dedicated to our sons and daughters of Carleton Place who so gallantly and bravely fought the good fight yet paid the supreme sacrifice. Our cenotaph has the names of those 94 individuals engraved on it.

The cenotaph area and the grounds surrounding it are considered sacred grounds, a place where we invite you to remember and pay your respects to those who bravely gave their lives so that we may enjoy freedom and democracy.

Please respect these sacred grounds for what they represent.

History
Memorial Park


Originally the site of the Market Square, Memorial Park was created with the dedication of the local cenotaph in 1924. Part of Memorial Park also consists of land (the north-eastern section) donated by the Gillies family as a result of the destruction of their family home during the great fire of 1910.

Each year of November 11, an annual Remembrance Day service is held to commemorate the former members of the community who gave the supreme sacrifice during Worl War I and World War II and the Korean Conflict.

Today, portions of the park are jointly maintained by the municipality, the I.O.D.E. and the Branch 192 of the Royal Canadian Legion.
