From the plaza looking back to the concrete blocks, an existing
geometrically shaped change building for the adjacent wading
pool complements the plaza geometry, as the pitched roof
echoes the angular fence, as well as the varied angles of dark
purple paving bands in the plaza. The building also provides a
staging area for ceremony participants (flag bearers, colour
party and officials) to muster and then enter the plaza space
during memorial events. Benches along the southern edge of
the walkway allow for ceremony participant seating or for quiet
reflection for park users, including an open area for wheelchair
visitors with four Tatarian Maples (Acer tataricum) along the
south edge providing shade and definition to the completed
memorial space.

Mayor of Gapyeong City (formerly Kapyong City) and three
other civic officials made the trans-Pacific journey to participate
and pay honor to this Battle for a June 22, 2019, Grand Opening
Ceremony. Many other guests including members of the Korean
Society of Manitoba, Legion members, local and federal officials,
the 25 member 2PPCLI honor guard from Shilo, MB, Korean War
vets and surviving Battle of Kapyong vets Doug Jones and Ron
Shephard were also in attendance.

With construction 95 per cent complete in December 2018, we
were informed that the memorial would be gifted a large granite
boulder and plinth from the very region where the Battle of
Kapyong occurred. Although a most gracious gift from the South
Korean Government, determining a meaningful location in an
already built memorial required sensitive consideration for both
the generosity of the gift without losing the original design intent.
At over 1.8 metres (six feet) in diameter including the foundation,
the boulder's placement within the memorial had the potential to
appear as an afterthought. Instead, a prominent location where
a mature oak tree had stood prior to construction, but had to
be removed for public safety reasons due to rot, was selected
at the Memorial entrance. In stark contrast to the black screen
fencing, the white boulder serves as a focal point for passersby
and is a direct remnant and reminder of the battle. In a show
of further gratitude from the South Koreans, the Consulate
General of the Republic of Korea travelled from Toronto and the
50 LANDSCAPES | PAYSAGES

When battle sites are physically and spiritually altered by conflict,
those very landscapes are often transformed into sacred places
where the sacrifices of so many can be remembered firsthand.
To all those involved in the design of Kapyong Park Memorial,
it seemed most fitting in honouring this unknown battle in
a forgotten war, that this boulder, an element not originally
included in the original design, should help transform the
memorial from a monument to a distant battle in a far-away place
to a landscape physically and inextricably linked to the place
where the fallen Canadian soldiers gave their lives.

5 10 UPRIGHT GRANITE BOULDERS COMMEMORATE THE 10 FALLEN SOLDIERS AND
700 TROOPS OF 2PPCLI. ACTING AS A METAPHOR FOR THE HILL UPON WHICH THEY
BATTLED, THE BOULDERS ARE HUDDLED CLOSE TOGETHER IN THE SAME MANNER
UPON WHICH THE MEN FOUND THEMSELVES FIGHTING. 6 IN STARK CONTRAST TO THE
BLACK STAINED FENCING TO ITS REAR AND UNDER WATCH OF THE SOUTH KOREAN,
CANADIAN AND CITY OF WINNIPEG FLAGS, THE WHITE GRANITE BOULDER FROM THE
KAPYONG REGION GREETS VISITORS PRIOR TO ENTERING THE MEMORIAL SPACE.
