You will find it on the East Beach as you walk along the White Rock Promenade, with detailed illustration on its historic background.

Easy access for wheelchairs and walkers. Memorial and Personal Family and Business engraved leaves are enjoyable to read. Great location, with amazing views of the White Rock Beach Canada and Semahamoo USA

Stop by and admire the beauty and craftsmanship of the Totem poles. Take a seat on the bench and take in the view. It is located between East and West Beach. And a pretty easy walk
