Coronation Park is just east of Ontario Place along the Martin Goodman Trail. A Royal Oak commemorating the Coronation of King George VI is planted in the south west corner of the Park. This Oak is surrounded by a ring of others and a grove of maple trees all planted in honour of Canadian War Veterans who defended it during the First World War. Beyond that circle other trees were planted to represent the four divisions of the Canadian Expeditionary Force and its units. Additional trees represent those who fought in the Fenian raids (1866-1870), the North West Rebellion (1885) and the Boer War (1899-190). Once all the trees had plaques at their foot to indicate the units the trees stood for. Coronation Park is a beautiful and peaceful spot to walk or sit and look out over Lake Ontario.
