Experience Canada’s Military Heritage On Barrie’s Waterfront

A 'unique' experience

The Military Heritage Park, next to the South Shore Centre in Barrie, has been officially opened. It’s not your usual display of planes and tanks says Mayor Jeff Lehman, but a series of memorial gardens that represent the landscapes Canada’s soldiers fought in – a trench wall and a garden for World War I and a desert landscape to reflect Afghanistan, for instance. You can walk through, get some information on the campaigns Canada participated in and reflect on them.

While it is a military themed area, the City of Barrie says it will not be home to this year’s Remembrance Day ceremony. Despite ongoing construction, this year’s ceremony will be held at Memorial Square in downtown Barrie.
