Central Memorial Park
Central Memorial Park, which you can see on this live cam, is located in the center of Calgary in Canada and occupies the entire city block between 11 and 12 Avenue SW. Its total area is 18,900 square meters. The landscape design of the park, created in 1889, is executed in the Victorian style. There is a monument dedicated to the Boer War - a statue of R. L. Boyle. The monument doesn't have a name on it, because the statue represents a tribute to all the citizens who fought during the World War II. The date of the war is carved on the pedestal: 1899-1902. By the monument is located the cenotaph (symbolic grave). On the south side of it is written "Let's live as noble as they died," on the north side - "Do not walk in sorrow, but with pride." The park is very popular both among tourists and citizens. It's nice to walk or just sit on a bench.
