The War Memorial on Hardings Hill Road in Portugal Cove was refurbished over 2014-15 on behalf of the Royal Canadian Legion NL Branch 10 and the Town of Portugal Cove - St. Philip's. The site was expanded for memorial services and new engraved monuments and pavers were designed and installed. Engravings acknowledge the units and ships of community members and the campaigns they took part in.

We are deeply saddened to inform that our founder and chairperson Paul Johnson passed away yesterday, October 12, 2015. His pioneering vision has guided the development of our internationally-recognized walkway and green space network for more than 20 years. As both colleagues and citizens, we are indebted to Mr. Johnson for his contributions to our communities and Province.
Bannerman Park had its grand re-opening on sunny Sunday afternoon with thousands in attendance on June 21, 2015. The Park's rich, 150-year history was commemorated with major upgrades and improvements as part of a nearly $6 million capital program. Since developing a Park Master Plan in 2003, the Grand Concourse has worked with the City of St. John's, the Bannerman Park Foundation, and many generous donors to see it all through. Between 2012-2015 we have constructed new entranceways and water features, installed Victorian-style amenities, and completed planting and landscaping throughout the Park.
Many thanks to all the individuals and organizations who helped bring this beautiful community centerpiece back to life!
