Overview

Originally used as a military reserve and training ground by the Canadian Military from WW1 to the early 1990s, this southwest park, Battalion Park aims to remember the four battalions that trained in the area during the First World War before being sent to the front lines overseas for active duty. There are interpretive signs along the park but their biggest attractions are the large white stone numbers that signify the four battalions. History acknowledges that soldiers hauled the 16,000 white stones up the hill. There is also a lookout and numerous pathways along the park.
