Confederation Park is another important landmark in downtown Ottawa that is located next to Lord Elgin Hotel. Confederation Park is the location of many of Ottawa’s cultural events and many festivals throughout the year. The Park also contains the National Aboriginal Veterans Monument and the Boer War memorial statue. The Lord Elgin Hotel Confederation Park Webcam shows the park during fall’s color change and is popular with guests at the hotel, visitors to Ottawa, and virtual visitors from around the world.
The Lord Elgin Hotel holds a special place in it’s heart for our fallen soldiers and it’s history is closely interwoven with that of our military. From our view overlooking the National War Memorial, we are reminded every day of the thousands of men and women who sacrificed their lives fighting for freedom and democracy during the First World War, the Second World War, the Korean Conflict, during peacekeeping missions and today in Afghanistan in the war on terror.
Each year since it’s opening, the hotel has hosted thousands of soldiers – those on active duty and veterans, as they come to Ottawa on military business, or to join with others to remember those we have lost fighting for our country. We have had the honor of hosting some of our most decorated soldiers year after year as they made their pilgrimages to Ottawa and then on to sites overseas where they fought major battles on behalf of Canada and her allies in years past.
The National War Memorial
In 1918 the armistice that ended World War I came into force, bringing to an end four years of hostilities that saw 60,000 Canadians die at sea, in the air, and on foreign soil. The War to End All Wars ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. On that day each year, Canadians are asked to pause and remember the thousands of men and women who sacrificed their lives fighting for freedom and democracy.
You may view the National War Memorial through our web-cam here at the Lord Elgin.
