Central Memorial Park

Heading to the library, I’ve ignored this park situated in the heart of Calgary’s SW. But recently I decided to investigate it’s corners.


In the summer, it’s busy with a water section for children, a restaurant and park benches. But this time of year while I plodded over the snow, I felt alone.


I discovered that the park’s name was due to the memory of those who fought in the Boer War, WW1, WW11 and the Korean War. There was even a stone dedicated to the Australian and New Zealand airmen who trained in Canada during the Second World War. The names of those buried in Canada were listed on the stone.
