The final phase of construction for the Hill 70 Memorial was completed in August 2019

Among the major elements added were walkways dedicated to the 5 other Victoria Cross recipients in addition to Sergeant Filip Konowal after whom the first pathway starting at the main gate is named. These are Lieutenant Robert Hill Hanna, Private Michael O’Rourke, Major Okill Massey Learmonth, Private Harry Brown, and Sergeant Fredrick Hobson.
The principal walkway to the memorial’s summit, which is dedicated to Frederick Lee, was made possible through the generosity of Robert H.N. Ho, (何鴻毅)CM OBC and The Poy Family. Additional elements related to this Canadian soldier of Chinese descent were provided by Ontasian Enterprises Inc., Sylvia & Jack Gin, The Lam Foundation, Grace and Richard Wong, and Dr. Chan Gunn.

Lastly interpretative history boards were installed around the site along with a free downloadable audio tour that has is being made available in both English and French. The latter were narrated by Canadian actor Dan Aykroyd, CM OOnt, and former CBC Radio Canada broadcaster Bernard Derome, CM, OQ.
