Location: N 45° 40.034 W 079° 38.603 Found on the east side of Highway 520, at the north edge of town.
Magnetawan no longer hosts a legion branch, but this memorial park still stands in memory and honour of those who served.
This is an impressive stone memorial, with a plaque and adorned by a brass cross and poppies. The park was dedicated in 2003.
The Magnetawan Legion has since joined forces with the nearby Dunchurch Branch #394.
The plaque reads as follows:
IN MEMORY AND HONOUR
OF THOSE WHO SERVED
WORLD WAR 1 1914-1918
WORLD WAR 2 1939-1945
KOREAN CONFLICT 1950-1953
AT HOME AND ABROAD
"To you...we throw the torch..."
LEST WE FORGET
ERECTED BY A GRATEFUL COMMUNITY
