  • Oshawa War Memorial– The Oshawa Ontario War Memorial (1924) was named "The Garden of the Unforgotten". This elaborate memorial was set with stones from each Great War Allied Nation and from the battlefields where Canadians fought. A pair of electric torches were to remain burning, and a copper time capsule box with artifacts from 1924 was buried under the memorial. In 2002, the Memorial Park was redeveloped and today the park incorporates beautiful gardens. A plaque explaining the redevelopment states: "Memorial Park is regarded as hallowed ground for quiet meditation, the enjoyment of music, and especially for honouring our men and women who served in armed conflicts".
