Celebrating our 25th Anniversary
The Commemorative Gardens at the Greenwood Military Aviation Museum is found adjacent to the Air Park. Here is found a beautifully manicured rose garden with fish pond, fountain and lovely brick walkways. Cairns, monument stones honour Greenwood Squadrons and personnel who have paid the ultimate sacrifice; these are brought together by a life-size bronze statue of a WWII airman at the center the Garden overlooking the Garden and Air Park.
The walkways are lined with more than 400 Commemorative Stones remembering individual members, personnel and their spouses that are serving or have served at CFB Greenwood. The stones express by there very existence our individual fellowship and camaraderie and our dedication to service which will now remain over time.
The granite stones, which measure (7 x 14 x 3 inches), are engraved with the name, unit, hometown and province of the individual to be honoured. Many have also added their spouse’s name and families have purchased stones as a unique Father’s Day or Christmas gift. The Museum is responsible for the stones and their maintenance.
Additional stones are continually being added by individuals and families who also wish to honour their comrades and peers by this unique project. Further information can be obtained by contacting the Museum or any Museum member.
The centerpiece of the Greenwood Military Aviation Museum's Memorial Garden is a lone, bronze statue of a WWII airman. This treasure was donated to the Museum by the Aircrew Association of Canada and unveiled by our previous Governor General, Adrienne Clarkson, on 21 October 2002
