The mission of the Atlantic Memorial Park project is to create a seaside journey of remembrance that brings Canada’s military history home.
The location of this purposed park is at the entrance to Sydney Harbour, an area which is steeped in military history dating back to the late 1800’s. The project area is intended to span over a 120 acre area, and see multiple projects constructed in phases over a 5-year time period.
Park components will include a restored Chapel Point Battery, a family park, a First Nations encampment, walking trails in a large woodland area, a beautiful ocean beach, and a feature monument on a spectacular cliff side setting overlooking Sydney Harbour.
Funding will be handled through a combination of government funding, private donations, community contributions, crowd funding, and other special events. The estimated cost is in the range of $15-$25 million. The Park will be completed in phases, over a 5 year period beginning with the restoration of the Chapel Point Battery.
