Kanata - Village Green

 

Location:  City of Ottawa      N 45.321280 - W 75.890339

In the small park at 10 Colchester Square, Kanata. 

 

 **Special thanks to Louise Bellec for the photos and descriptions.

Dedicated on September 20 1998. Kanata is an area now in Ottawa. Before it used to be part of Nepean.

The park is really nice and all along the way there are trees with a small plaque dedicated to soldiers, veterans and some with a small message of thank you. At the end of the park, there is a cenotaph with names on bricks. Could not find much about this one.
