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.

You may walk around the sub and truly get an excellent perspective of the size of these modern-day warships. There are plaques that explain about the boat and what you are seeing.

Loads of history! Wear really good walking shoes, bring your camera, and sunscreen! This entire area is loaded with plenty to see! Read up on the history before you go!

This was so cool to see! It's really a little shocking to suddenly see it! The entire area is beautiful. What a great background for pictures.

A quiet, serene manicured location. 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.

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.

It is worth a stop to, walk around, reflect, on the service, and sacrifice that these men made. While located in the Patriots Point area it is a separate site. It is FREE. This site is a tribute to those men who served and sacrificed in the Submarine Service during the Cold War. The only actual parts of the submarine... More

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.
