The Grace Ceperley plaque commemorates Grace Ceperley who paid for the initial playground at Ceperley field in Stanley Park. In addition to the playground, the entire area (Ceperley field, Ceperley Meadow, Ceperley Park) is named after her!
Grace was the neice of A.G. Ferguson, for whom Ferguson Point was named, and one of the first parks commissioners. He left money in his will to Grace with the intention of building a playground in Stanley Park. She followed through with it.
The plaque says:
This playground was equiped by the late Mrs. Grace E. Ceperley and dedicated to the Board of Park Commissioners for the use and benefit of the the children of the city of Vancouver
The Grace Ceperley Plaque in Stanley Park is located on the outside wall of the Ceperley Park Picnic cooking facilities building. This is on the hill above Ceperley Park above the original Ceperley Park playgound and the Air India Memorial. Nearby is the Queen Elizabeth Oak Tree and plaque.
