Very, very well kept with plenty of plaques and monuments honouring Canadian soldiers and their regiments. The locals call it 'Parc du Canadienne' (Canada Park).

We had been here before so knew it was a good venue for a visit. It's an old theatre, but the volunteers have made some really good displays. There is a film to watch too, this is very sad but will show juts what happened on the day.

The nuseum itself it only 1 room but it tells the story of the tragic failure of 19 August 1942 when 1,197 soldiers, mostly Canadian, died. There is a film playing (lasts about an hour) showing film from the time and has interviews with veterans. It's very moving. Worth a visit and only 3 Euros entry fee.

Simple but poignant. A fitting tribute to the many brave Canadians who gave their lives for freedom. It is pleasing that Dieppe remembers this sacrifice.

The garden is lovely and well kept, locals come here to reflect a little and to take in the air. The memorial serves us as a reminder at how awful war is and who have sacrificed their lives for us.

This is a beautiful place to remember the fallen. Simple but understated. A place of calm even though there is traffic close by.

This a a small Memorial that pays homage to Canada's war dead of August 19, 1942. The small garden is quite nice but whoever is supposed to cut the grass was a bit behind. I feel strongly that a memorial of this type should always be pristine and manicured.

Worth a little visit. Great location and very interesting for the WWII buffs out there. A little dirty as the crows or gulls had been into the trash.
