"The RCAF Park and Ad Astra Monument, is dedicated to the memories and history of members of the RCAF and the aviation history of the Edmonton area. It is located in the Griesbach area of the City of Edmonton. The entrance to the park is on McCrae Avenue between Colonel Newburn Road and Veterans Way (N53.61126 W113.51311). I toured the park with my friend Bill Buckham (BGen Retired) and my grandson. Bill was the prime motivator and designer of the park. For those of you interested in military aviation, this park is well worth a visit. Be sure to see the south end of Roundel Lake."
