Druid Walk - Local Hill Figures

It's time for our next Druid Walk.      We will meet at Battalion Park at 10:00 am, Sunday August 28th.  Park your car, or take the bus to  3001 Signal Hill Dr. S.W. and we will explore the local hill figures.
Battalion Park, originally known as Camp Sarcee in 1915, opened on November 3, 1991 and was built to commemorate World War 1. Members of the Calgary, Lethbridge, Central Alberta, and Edmonton battalions hauled 16,000 stones in sacks onto the hill.
The original stones were used to form the numbers 137, 113, 151, and 51 which represent the regiment numbers of the above battalions. Members of the 137 Battalion fought for years to maintain the rocks and have them declared a historic site. The stones were carefully stored and saved by Stewart Green Properties Ltd. (As per City of Calgary Parks website)
Summer Blessings to all!
