  • 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".
