Fallen Four Memorial

Location: Mayerthorpe

Four bronze mounties stand on guard around a central plinth topped with doves aflight. These solemn statues honour RCMP Constables Schiemann, Johnston, Gordon and Myrol, killed in the line of duty on March 3, 2005.

The park is both a memorial to four brave men, and a tribute to those who sacrifice themselves for the protection and well-being of mankind.
