While cutting across the park to get into our parking lot, I found out that there is a World War I Memorial between Stanley Park and the Vancouver Aquarium. This monument is in lasting memory of the 190 Canadians who answered the call of duty of Canada in defense of freedom in the great war. This monument was erected in April 2, 1920. There was also a re-lighting of the memorial by Japanese descendants on August 2, 1985.

Besides the memorial, there is also a chidren's park where kids can slide or swing. It looked like only the local residents of Vancouver come here because it is very secluded. If you wanted to come here, just go passed the the replica of the Japanese ship and take a left. You can't really drive your car. You have to walk. It is probably about 600 yards passed several thick trees.
