Naval Reserve Centennial

Queenny Bombase, Sama Salsany

While honouring the Naval Reserve and the HMCS Star, the new garden area will be designed around the theme of time. As all sailors are inextricably linked to the vessels on which they served throughout time and history. This place will be used as a peaceful contemplative spot to commemorate the Royal Canadian Navy's and Canadian Armed Forces' previous accomplishments. The garden was inspired by a compass and a captain's wheel that will permanently bind sailors together. The design will pay tribute to Canada's twenty-four Naval Reserve Divisions.
