Location: Wellington County N 43 45.369 W 080 40.221
On the east side of Wellington Street, at the corner of Wood Street.
A pair of stone pillars with a metal arch leads us into Drayton Memorial Park, a pleasant park which acts as a reminder of those brave souls who fought for their country, men from this small village and the surrounding farmlands. The memorial is made of cobblestone and once featured a small fountain. On the front and back are engraved the names of the fallen from the World Wars. Flowers and wreaths decorate the base of the stone cenotaph and show that people of this community still care and have not forgotten.
