Tulip Planting Lee Park RCAF2024

In celebration of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) Centennial, the 22 Wing North Bay RCAF2024 Stakeholder Committee and the City of North Bay planted tulip bulbs in locations around North Bay that have special significance in the history of the RCAF. In order to recognize these efforts and celebrate this milestone, Tourism North Bay has created a Tulip Tour highlighting these sites. 

 The RCAF has historic ties to tulips. In World War II, Canada assisted in the liberation of the Netherlands. As a thank you, and a yearly tradition, to this day the Netherlands sends 20,000 tulip bulbs to Canada.  

 To view the newly planted tulip beds, visitors can follow the map (below) and take in the beauty at the following sites: 

  1. Lee Park and the CF-100 Canuck Memorial, 
  2. Fighter Group Monument along the North Bay Waterfront,  
  3. Memorial Park, and,  
  4. North Bay City Hall. 

 To learn more about Canada’s historical and current contributions to air defence, visitors can also visit the Canadian Forces Museum of Aerospace Defence (CFMAD).
