George Wainborn Park Ireland Canada monument

The Vancouver Park Board has received a proposal from the Ireland Canada Monument Society External website to install a monument in George Wainborn Park that honours the contributions of Irish Canadians to Canada.

Help shape the design proposals before we install the monument in 2017.

The non-profit society has funded the monument and their proposal follows our donation process for monuments and memorials.
