Central Memorial Park
Known as Calgary's oldest park, Central Memorial Park offers a beautifully landscaped, historic oasis. The City of Calgary writes, "in 1899, William Pearce convinced the Federal Government to donate land for the park and by 1912 the park was complete and considered a civic showcase. The grounds were modelled after a formal Victorian garden featuring geometric pathways, elaborate garden beds, and rows of imported and native trees." There are two statues in this park: one is to honor the soldiers who fought in WWI, and the other to honor the Albertans who fought in the Second Boer War.
