Queen Elizabeth Tree and Plaque in Stanley Park

The Queen Elizabeth Oak Tree is one of the historical trees in Stanley Park.  It was planted on the day, May 12th, 1937, of the coronation of King George VI with his wife Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Cosmo Lang.

An interesting fact about this tree is that a lot of people believe that this tree is for our current Queen Elizabeth, but actually it is for her mother, the Queen Mother!

Another interesting fact is that tree is from the Royal Forest at Windsor which is a long ways away!

This tree is rarely visited by people because of it's location...on the tip of land where Stanley Park Drive intersects with Lagoon Drive between the Fish House and Second Beach.  It took us quite a while to actually find this tree!
