Shrine Peace Memorial

We are still touring the grounds at Exhibition Place and this is the second major fountain found there. This is the Shrine Peace Memorial - the sculpture and bench were presented to the people of Canada in 1930 by the Shriners as a symbol of the peace and friendship between the USA and Canada. The fountain around it was opened in 1958 as well as a beautiful rose garden surrounding the whole thing. Very powerful don't you think?

A very lovely photograph of this fine memorial! Looks like it was a perfect day in Toronto! The sculpture exudes the message of peace and love and hopefully, it always shall be that way between our two countries.

Powerful and most of all so calming. It's a perfect image and setting for a peace memorial.

A Peace Memorial is a wonderful idea, but we could use more peace in our world. It is a lovely sculpture.
