Leaside Gardens now part of the National Inventory of Military Memorials

We are pleased to announce that Leaside Memorial Community Gardens is now part of the National Inventory of Canadian Military Memorials.

The National Inventory of Canadian Military Memorials website is a repository of memorials and monuments located in communities across the country. Currently, more than 7,500 memorials are posted on the website.

This recreation facility was named in honour of the World War II veterans. The plaque mounted outside the facility reads: “In memory of the men of the Town of Leaside who gave their lives for their country in the second World War – 1939-1945”.

17 Servicemen from Leaside were killed in World War II. All of the Servicemen resided in South Leaside at some point. Some were raised in Leaside while others moved to Leaside as young adults.
