This garden is named in honour of HMCS Sackville, a corvette that had a distinguished career during the Second World War. She was launched on May 15, 1941 in Saint John, New Brunswick and was christened by Mrs. J.E.W. Oland in the presence of Mayor Norman Hesler and the entire town council of Sackville. HMCS Sackville was named after the Town of Sackville, which supported the ship and her crew during the Second World War.
Over 269 corvettes were built and launched (most of them in Canada) between 1939 and 1944 but HMCS Sackville is the sole survivor. She is berthed in Halifax, Nova Scotia where she proudly serves as the official Canadian Naval Memorial reminding the people of Canada of the sacrifices made by the ships' crews in the Battle of the Atlantic. The Town continues to support the ship, which is open to the public, in its role as a National Memorial.
Dedicated on May 15, 2010, in recognition of the national celebration of The Canadian Naval Centennial
