Overview
More
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.

This Park honors all veterans. It is both beautiful and somber at the same time. A good place to walk for exercise and also a good place to sit and reflect.

An outstanding park on city land administered by a foundation. There is a half size Vietnam Wall and there are monuments to WW I, WW II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Global War on Terror. There are monuments to submariners and naval aviators. A well-kept park...More

The bench in the photo says it best. This is a park to honor and remember the veterans. But actively, not like a cenotaph. Walk and share. Read the inscriptions and various plaques and monuments. This is a free park and along the waterfront which...More
