Veteran’s Memorial

David Volz Design Landscape Architects Inc., 2007

The focal point of the park is a 15 foot tall six sided central memorial which was made from a combination of honed white granite and polished black granite the memorial honors the sacrifices from the men and women of the United States armed services. An inscription pays honor to the local residents who have served our country and the monument is accented by 50 cast bronze stars. A half sphere dome made from six stars finishes the memorial and is topped by a bronze eagle in full flight. The memorial is beautifully illuminated at night and sets the tone for the whole park. Located behind this central monument are six honed green granite columns. The face of each column is polished and each features one of six military seals cast in bronze. Behind these columns is a grass hill symbolizing that service in the military is often a daunting task and uphill struggle. The park also features an inspirational wall with patriotic quotes engraved in natural sandstone.
