Gore Peace Memorial Park Improvements

100th year anniversary of Gore Peace Memorial Park

Gore-Peace Memorial Park [PDF - 172 KB] was dedicated in 1919 when a memorial ceremony was held on July 19 to honour the young men from Saanich who did not return from WWI.

A peace memorial made out of a granite block was unveiled in the park on November 11, 1957. The memorial was then relocated from the park to the municipal hall after a 5-2 council vote in May 1970. For more information visit the Saanich Archives.
