Visitors to Bushy Park may not always discover the Canadian Totem Pole in the Canadian Glade in the Woodland Gardens. It was installed there on 1st July 1992, having been carved on site at The Stockyard by a First Nation family. It is a commemoration of how Canadian soldiers were cared for at Upper Lodge in Bushy Park during the First World war.
The story of its creation and installation featured at the time in a film on a BBC schools programme, Sight and Sound.
