100th year anniversary of Gore-Peace Memorial Park
The fountain is up and running in the park and ready to welcome visitors with new bench seating and a coffee table. The fountain and park plaza are to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the park (held in 2019). Gore-Peace Memorial Park [PDF - 172 KB] was originally dedicated in 1919 when a memorial ceremony was held on July 19th to honour the young men from Saanich who did not return from WWI.
Come enjoy this rejuvenated pocket park that now features additional picnic tables, bike loops, new tree planting and a connection pathway to historical interpretive signage about Shelbourne Avenue and men and women who served in the Great War.
