The District is constructing an accessible ramp immediately west of the cenotaph to provide barrier-free access to the cenotaph and the upper part of the park. The District has been in regular contact with the West Vancouver Legion and they are supportive and excited about the project.
The accessibility ramp will create barrier-free access for veterans and others who use wheelchairs, walkers, or other mobility aids during the annual Remembrance Day Ceremony and at other times of the year. A section of the wall is being removed so the ramp can be built next to the cenotaph, allowing people with mobility aids to get as close as possible to visit the cenotaph and lay wreaths during the ceremony.
This project has received a grant from Employment and Social Development Canada through their Enabling Accessibility Fund.
Construction of the ramp will take place from August to November 2021.
