Korean War Memorial Garden
Help us build a beautiful new garden, in conjunction with the Month to Remember, we are raising funds to create a Korean War Memorial Garden that will surround the Gapyeong Stone. Here are drawings of the proposed Korean War Memorial Garden.
The Gapyeong Stone Korean War Memorial was unveiled to commemorate the sacrifice, honour and gratitude for the contribution of Canadian armed forces in the Korean War during the battle of Kapyong (Gapyeong) in April of 1951.
The Battle of Kapyong was Canada’s most significant action of the Korean War. Fought in the hills above the Kapyong Valley, Canadian and United Nations soldiers held back a major enemy offensive. The fallen soldiers were among the 516 Canadians who died in ser-vice during the Korean War.
