Just to the south of the Sunken Garden, that open grassy area (which has a fantastic view of Cootes Paradise) has a mound that you can make out in the satellite image. On that mound is a small memorial dedicated to soldiers of the War of 1812 and cholera victims from the 1850s, who are buried somewhere along that part of Burlington Heights.

I stopped on a whim one evening last winter. The sun was going to go down and I happened to be driving on York Blvd, and it was such a nice crisp evening (damn cold!) I decided to pull over for a look. I can't recall ever being at the memorial but the Sunken Garden seemed very familiar, though I probably hadn't been there since I was a kid.
