George Wainborn Park - Ireland Canada Place

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

The non-profit society has committed to funding the monument and their proposal follows our donation process for memorials.
