PHOTOS: City Redesigns Part of Chinguacousy Park In Brampton
The city recently redesigned the Chinguacousy Park Memorial Plaza.
For those of you who are unaware, Bramalea Branch 609 of the Royal Canadian Legion dedicated a war memorial in Chinguacousy Park around 1976 to honour those who had given their lives in service during WWI, WWII, the Korean War, and United Nations missions. Chinguacousy Park Memorial Plaza, which surrounds the memorial, was also constructed during the same time.
The city chose to redesign the plaza back in 2017 and the construction is now complete.
The redesign now honours the Royal Canadian Legion Bramalea Branch 609, as well as the Air, Army, and Sea Cadets, whom the branch shares close ties with.
Located at the southwest corner of Chinguacousy Park, the plaza has been built to allow for larger Royal Canadian Legion events. It also expands the area for park visitor's use and enjoyment.
The new design features four art panels with the logos of the Royal Canadian Legion, Air, Army and Sea Cadets, and inscriptions of the Canadian national anthem and bronze maple leaves on the low walls. The surface materials represent the Army and Sea through the colour selection and wave-like pattern. Lastly, the linear band that leads to the memorial symbolizes the Air as it resembles a landing strip.
What do you think of the Chinguacousy Park Memorial Plaza's new design?
