Known as "The Crossings' Children's Memorial Gazebo and Boardwalk", or "The Crossings" for short, this memorial is a tribute to the children who lost their lives in the most tragic fire in the City of Kitchener’s recent history. Consisting of a boardwalk and gazebo, the memorial is located at the edge of the Williamsburg Cemetery’s natural wetlands.

The memorial was created in partnership with the Kitchener Professional Fire Fighters Association (KPFFA).

While the boardwalk is a memorial to children, it also serves as an educational environment where people can learn about the natural flora and fauna of the wetland.
