  • A very well kept memorial with the impressive stone "Brooding Soldier" and surrounding gardens which have been planted with soils from all over Canada. Don't forget to sign the guest register at the back. There are no toilets nearby so keep that in mind.
  • My family visited this memorial as it marks a special event in our family narrative. My grandfather fought in the Second Battle of Ypres April 22-24, 1915. He fortunately survived the gas attacks but was wounded in the knee and captured by the Germans during their advance. He spent the rest of the war as a POW and came to admire the German people. This monument truly is a fitting tribute to those that fell in those tragic days. We visited on a rainy day and the giant soldier brooding in a towering fashion over the surrounding trees is a sight worth remembering. About 2 km SE on Keezellarstraat is another small monument on Gravenstaffel Ridge located exactly where the Canadians faced the Geman attack.
  • Moving to see where the Canadians stood their ground when thy got gassed.
  • Beautiful little park and monument.
