Great Reminder of Our Servicemen...

Nicely kept walking park with granite memorial benches. Gives you some idea of the size of the 'container' our men sailed underwater.

The Cold War Submarine memorial recognizes the strong, dedicated submarine families, wives, children and parents - who selflessly endured long and silent absences while their loved ones were at sea on patrol for extended periods throughout the cold war. Surrounding The sail of the USS Lewis and Clark (SSBN 664), is a walking path with... More

I visited this memorial for the 3rd time as part of a ships reunion for the USS Henry L Stimson SSBN 655. The memorial is done exceptionally well and gives a very good impression of a "boomer" sailing into port.

Interesting to see the conning tower of the Lewis and Clark as part of this exhibit. Gives you a great feel for how large the boomers that made up the third leg of the nuclear triad were.

Thought I'd have trouble being actually inside a submarine, but it wasn't as scary as imagined. Guides inside were very informative and helpful.

You may not be there that long but certainly worth checking out after seeing the ship and the subs on the harbor.

This is a great little place to just get out and stretch your legs and in the mean time learn some history while you stretch your legs. There is a lot to take in but the short walk would only take you 30 minutes but if you read all the plagues that are there you could be there for at... More
