Pioneer Memorial Park

The tract of land before you was once known as the ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST CATHOLIC CHURCH CEMETERY. This land is now known as Pioneer Memorial Park and is the burial place of many of the Comox Valley's Pioneer family members, dating back as early as the 1880's.

In 1980 the Pastoral Council of St. John the
Baptist church of Comox officially handed over the cemetery to the Town to be maintained in perpetuity as a memorial park.

The Town of Comox, along with the Knights of Columbus, have recently renovated Pioneer Memorial Park and through the efforts of their partnership wish to convey the historic significance of this site.

There is a Cenotaph in the center of the park on which 29 markers for 32 of the buried have been preserved and a plaque that reads:
