In the Rose garden in Stanley Park there is an arbour and cairn in the middle of the arbour.
Little known is that there is a cairn in Stanley Park that contains "historic Vancouver memorabilia" that is set to be opened in 2093, one hundred years after it was placed in the cairn!
The plaque says:
1893 * 1993
To commemorate the occasion of the
Vancouver Pioneers' Association Centenary
This rose arbour and cairn are dedicated to the memory of all Vancouver pioneers.
Sincere appreciation for their generosity is extended to:
Our late pioneer member Hector F. Steele, the Vancouver Parks Board, the Provincial Government
The cairn, containing historic Vancouver memorabilia, is to be opened October 26, 2093.
The Vancouver Pioneers' Association Cairn and Plaque in Stanley Park are located in the Rose Garden in Stanley Park. It is next to the Shakespeare Garden just up Pipeline road from the traffic circle.
