Veterans Memorial Park
Connections to other parks
Veterans Memorial Park is perhaps best known for its seven monuments, but various markers and plaques that are interspersed throughout the park add depth to the stories of our troops in Twentieth and Twenty-First Century service to our country. When visiting, please take time to walk around and look at the plaques and stones that mark our walkways throughout the park.
