Situated on Stephen St., this park provides a pleasant downtown retreat. Confederation Park is handicap accessible and was established in 1967 to commemorate Canada’s 100th Birthday. Come see large the Van Gertz Cottonwood, located in the southeast corner of the park. Its seed was sent in a letter from New York in about 1891 and was received by James R. Bonny, Chief Clerk of the Morden Land Titles Office from 1890 – 1925. The park also is the home of the community cenotaph, which was erected in 1921 to honour those who fought in World War I and later World War II.
