A Guide to Places with Pictures and Stories from Life

Canada Memorial

The Canada Memorial (London) was opened in 1994 and is dedicated to the Canadians who served in the two world wars.   It can found at the bottom of Green Park very near to Buckingham Palace.

When I visited it was a very hot day in July and children were very happily using it as a water slide.  Despite the “keep off” sign, nobody wanted to stop them and everybody was having a great day in the sunshine.

This little pigeon decided to join in and enjoy cool feet.  A lot of wild life around London seem to have become so accustomed to a human presence that they can allow themselves to indulge in curiosity and even participation.  The squirrels of St James Park being a great example.  Here is one cool pigeon.

The colours of the opening picture are so intriguing that I couldn’t help tweaking it a bit.

    • I’m glad you think so. As memorials go it is certainly amongst the finest I’ve seen and pleasing to see the children making practical and fun use of it. I think those to whom it is dedicated would approve. 🙂
