Truly interactive history

Interactive Memorial Wall

Peacekeepers Park, Calgary
A Tribute to Canada’s Peacekeepers 

Peacekeepers Park features a stunning Wall of Honour that commemorates Canadian peacekeeping missions and pays tribute to those who have lost their lives. The bronze statue  on its western edge depicts Canadian peacekeeper Mark Isfeld giving an “Izzy” doll to a child. The “Izzy” doll is named after Mark Isfeld, whose mother crocheted small dolls for him to give to local children while on patrols during his tour. Isfeld’s name is on the wall of the park, as he was killed by a landmine in Croatia on June 21, 1994. The park also features a Mission Wall which lists all the United Nations missions that Canadians have been involved in.
