Veterans Memorial Park
Veterans Memorial Park will serve as a venue for veterans funerals, first time enlistments, military and non-military weddings as well as military and civic holiday activities.
This will not be a children's park with athletic fields, playground equipment, or sporting events.
Currently, all funding is donated. Estimated expenses for completion of the park total $1.5 million dollars. Funding will depend primarily on grants and donations (monetary, material, labor and time.)
Veterans Memorial Park will include such features as an amphitheater with dais, a POW/MIA memorial gazebo, a water feature and a six foot wide walking trail featuring monuments detailing the history of all major US military engagements.
The park will be fully handicap accessible and open to all.
This project will provide instant stimulus to the economy of the area through both the purchase of materials and employment of people in various fields of expertise.
