The Park is dedicated to the 160,000+ Canadians who have served on United Nations (UN) sanctioned missions since 1947 and it memorializes the 283 fallen Canadians on its Wall of Honour. The Park also displays two white armoured vehicles, a Lynx recce tracked vehicle and now a LAV III, unveiled on August 9, 2017. The LAV III commemorates the CAF personnel who served in Afghanistan and other UN sanctioned missions. Visitors who stroll along the Park's pathway have the opportunity to read pedestals listing the 58 UN sanctioned missions, take a photo in a guard post, view both the Lynx and LAV III and pay tribute at the Wall of Honour.
