The ‘Re-dedication’ of Coronation Park – Saturday November 10 at 10 30 – 12 00
This is a City of Toronto activity supported by the band and a 100 man guard from the Regiment. Guard will be in place by 10:45 AM, so I would suggest everyone who will be in attendance, be over at the park by 10:30 AM. Dress will be full dress with CF medals only, and poppy.
Join members of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Commonwealth Consular Corps for a special re-dedication ceremony of Coronation Park.
The unique commemorative function of Coronation Park, tied to the First World War, is being restored. A moment of silence will be observed.
Coronation Park on the waterfront is a living war memorial that was opened to commemorate King George VI’s coronation on May 12, 1937.
The trees in the park commemorate the service and sacrifice of Canada’s military forces, principally those from the Great War (also known as the First World War) and embody the spirit of idealism that emerged following the horrors of the war.
144 trees were planted to commemorate Canada’s military in honour of the King’s coronation. This was the largest tree planting of its kind in Canada at the time. Each tree was ceremonially placed by veterans of the Canadian Expeditionary Force.
On August 1, 1938, veterans returned to simultaneously unveil plaques, with one tree to commemorate each unit that fought.
During the 1939 royal visit, war veterans and the Men of the Trees and Toronto students planted 123 sugar maples along Remembrance Drive as the royal vehicle passed by.
The park is an important commemorative space and is possibly the largest First World War memorial in Toronto. It is now being restored to its original design as a permanent memorial to Canada and Toronto’s war effort. The first stage of this redesign will be completed by November 10, 2018.
