Its a very tranquil and peaceful place, a simple tribute to the brave soldiers from Canada who gave their lives. The Canada gate just outside the main memorial along with the footprints in the wood planks, speaks such volumes. There is also a nearby memorial...More

A must see for anyone interested in Canadian War history. The location of one of the most historic battles in Canadian Military history. Beautiful and moving.

Another great stop for any history buff. We were especially moved when several Canadians placed poppies they had brought with them on the memorial. The Brooding Soldier monument is especially poignant.

This is a lovely and spacious memorial to all those Canadian troops who fell during WW1. The lovely views looking out over the slopes, the position is apt - this high ground was fiercely fought over, with significant loss of life. Come and reflect.

The monument itself is very striking, the brooding soldier stands testament to the sacrifice by Canadian soldiers during the second battle of Ypres. the trees are shaped like shells and shell explosions. a beautiful place to visit.
