Cairns
Managed By: Icon Here Cairn Seekers
Description:
Cairns are purposly placed significant mounds of rocks placed as locations of memorial, spiritual protection or for prayer.

They are generally built loose without mortar, but are on occasion reinforced in modern years to aid their survival.

Modern cairns are erected as memorials & prayer markers for loved ones lost, these of course have a place here.

Small casual groupings of stones placed by travelers will not be considered, cairns must be significant and set to stand the test of time

Riverside Park in Kamloops was begun in 1905, on the former site of a lumber mill and a pig farm. Since its inception it has been the major park in the city, with the greatest number of amenities. It is far and away the most used park in the city.

Down the hill in Memorial Park from the large cenotaph is this smaller stone cairn built by the students of Stuart Wood Elementary School. It was created in memory of the students of the school who died in war.
