    Victoria Memorial Park is just like many other urban parks: people strolling with dogs, sitting on park benches reading, relaxing on the grass. But how many have ever stopped to read the story of this place. Long neglected, this was originally a burial ground for hundreds of Fort York soldiers killed in battle or from their wounds, during the War of 1812. Before finally being protected in the early 1900s, only 17 headstones remained. One might wonder what these soldiers thought about their ultimate sacrifice to protect a vision for this nation, and what they might think of what it has become today...a nation of hope freedom, respect, equality, equity and opportunity for all who start their dreams here. I think they would be very proud.

    Victoria Memorial Park is a very pretty, nice place. What strikes me most about this site is the headstones in the park. It is extremely moving to see all the names and the quotes and descriptions of who these people were. They are all from around the war of 1812, so of course this park is of historical significance to Canada, and because it is right downtown, it is accessible. If you love nature but don't always have the time to go out into the wilderness, this is great place to sit in relax or just take a stroll through.

Who's headstone portrayed this elegant quote: "When I can read my title clear/To mansions in the skies, I'll bid farewell to every fear/And wipe my weeping eyes."
