What a place! From the Wall, to the monuments, to the stepping stones; this park demonstrates how much the community cares for its Veterans. Thank you!!!

Not only does this list thousands of names of soldiers in the area but also gives some history facts related to Mayo and many other military related facts.

The Veteran Memorial is a beautiful remembrance wall, accompanied by paver named for Heros lost. There are scenes engraved in the marble for each war, and the names of our fallen engraved on the back. I find it a great place to relax, remember, and pray.

Surprisingly moving and well laid out and thought out memorial to veterans, close to downtown Rochester and at the entrance to Soldier's Field Park. Worth a stop to walk around the memorial and pay homage to those who have sacrificed so much for our country.

We have been to Rochester many times and have never visited the memorial before. WOW, were we impressed. This place is phenomenal. I highly recommend a visit from every visitor to Rochester. This is something the town can be really proud of. God Bless all of those who served.

Don't miss this if you are in Rochester. The art work on the granite walls is very well done. It is a beautiful & thoughtful memorial to our military. If you have children there are a couple of very nice playgrounds near by, a splash pad, & also a golf course. Great way to spend an afternoon.

This is such a beautiful memorial in a peaceful spot. Not a place to go to when you're in a rush because it truly inspires contemplation.
