About This Location

memorial parkVeterans Memorial

The Veterans Memorial is the gem of Memorial Park. It is a beautiful, soelmn space built to honor all five branches of military. Plans for the project were announced early in 2014 and came to fruition on November 7, 2015 with a parade and dedication ceremony. The Veterans Memorial was dedicated to those wounded or killed while serving their country.

The Sherman tank was moved to its current location and the Lockheed T-33A Shooting Star jet was added during park renovations in 2015. The Veterans Memorial also includes a Purple Heart exhibit built with the support of local citizens. The space was designed with visitors in mind, and offers convenient access to parking. The Veterans Memorial may be used for ceremonies or gatherings to honor all branches of military.

The Veterans Memorial is a place where all are invited to learn, reflect, and offer respect to those who serve and have served our country.

To inquire about use of the Veterans Memorial for approved purposes, call the Parks Program Director at (260) 358-2323.
