The home of Wall South, the first permanent replica of the National Vietnam War Memorial. Founded in 1992 the Park has since grown and prospered. It now includes a WWI Memorial, a WWII Memorial, a Korean War Memorial, and a running series of plaques to honor local warriors who have fallen in the Global War on Terror. There is also a Purple Heart Memorial and a monument to the submarine lifeguards who rescued so many Navy pilots in WWII (including President George Herbert Walker Bash). Most recently, it is home to the Marine Corps Aviation Bell Tower, which has become a popular venue for local veteran's events and ceremonies. Our Park continues to grow. A Revolutionary War Memorial has been approved and will shortly join our other memorials. It will fill a gap of omission at the Park, honoring those whose sacrifice gave Americans a Nation worth defending. The next gap to be filled will be a memorial to honor the current generation of Americans who are fighting the Global War on Terror. Our community is steeped in military tradition and enriched with a strong military presence. The full range of service, sacrifice, duty and honor that comes with military service is amply illustrated in the example of our own citizens. This park is dedicated to the memories of those who sacrificed their lives in the defense of this nation.

Our Vietnam Dustoff group toured the wall on a warm and clear Saturday morning in October. We found the 'Wall" to be an excellent replica of the wall in DC. It was not difficult to find the names of our lost crew members. The entire grounds gave a sense of being very hallow. All of the various military wars were... More

I've been here several times. The replica Vietnam Memorial wall is inspiring. A lot of other nice tributes that allow you to think and reflect on regarding those who've served and those who've supported them. A nice learning opportunity for our up and coming young Americans.

As incredible place of peace and solitude. Each memorial, whether a replica or an original will stir your heart. Taking the time to recognize the sacrifice of others at each memorial may become emotionally overwhelming. You will not be alone. Comfort is found in tears, while the spirit of those lost provide a humble solitude.

I visited Veterans Memorial Park of Pensacola FL recently. Went with my son, a Wounded Warrior, even though we fought in different wars the respect, reverence and emotions bridged our age gaps. I've been fortunate to visit the Wall in DC with my son and my wife and it doesn't matter if we visit the original, a traveling wall or... More

Honoring the veterans of many wars, this park is a nice walk on a pleasant day. There's a Vietnam Wall replica as well as a memorial to Korean War vets. Across the street is a memorial to lost children.

Wonderful memorial to our Veterans, it was a long time coming and I am very proud to send visitors to our area to view the history at this sovereign park. If you have not visited in the past couple of years, there have been additions.

A 1/2 reproduction of the DC memorial. It contains all the names of the servicemen and women who lost their lives on behalf of the US in Vietnam. A thank you that was a long time coming. It also contains memorials to other service people.
