Share Your Thoughts

Community Veterans Memorial is a 6.5 acre park featuring bronze and granite sculptures, and life-size monuments to depict the major military conflicts that shaped the 20th Century.

The memorial imparts a reflective and provocative vision for peace. From the trenches of World War I through the Pacific beaches and European battles of World War II, the extreme weather and combat conditions of Korea, the rugged brutal fire fights of Vietnam, and the sandy sea of Desert Storm, the memorial pays the highest tribute to all veterans.

A commemorative brick pathway leads visitors on their journey through history. Individuals and groups are invited for self-guided tours in which several stations provide pre-recorded information about the defining wars of the 20th Century. Guided tours are also available.

Thank you for visiting the website and if you havent already, visit the memorial to remember and pay tribute to those whose lives shaped our world today.
