Veterans Memorial Park

Veterans Memorial Park

Highway #2, Bass River, Nova Scotia

10c other warsI can’t describe this memorial park; it is a park that needs to be experienced. If you find yourself along Highway #2 near Bass River, take the time to seek out the park (it is easy to find). To appreciate the meaning, you need to take the time to reflect on what the park is about. The brokenThe designers of the living memorial have done a tremendous job with flowers, memorials and information to create a very poignant experience.  

Upon entering, The Garden of Sorrows tells us about the horrors of war, The Garden of Remembrance proudly displays the names of Canadian soldiers who served or who are currently serving in military and peacekeeping. The Garden of Hope is beautifully laid out with plants from around the world showing diversity of color, texture and scent mingle together in peace.

Forgotten HerosAlso, in various corners are three monuments: The Broken, soldiers who returned from the war changed, The Transformation, a creative structure symbolizing the transformation from war to peace and to The Forgotten Hero’s, the animals who also served and gave their lives in the war.

Imotional PoemThere is a lot more and reading the information adds greatly to the experience. I was extremely touched and moved to tears by the poem engraved on black stone with a simple memorial upon entering the Garden of Sorrows.

We were exceedingly affected and impressed, and I hope to go back for one of their numerous remembrances throughout the year.
