Overview
More
The home of Wall South, the first permanent replica of the National Vietnam War Memorial. Founded in 1992 the Park has since grown and prospered. It now includes a WWI Memorial, a WWII Memorial, a Korean War Memorial, and a running series of plaques to honor local warriors who have fallen in the Global War on Terror. There is also a Purple Heart Memorial and a monument to the submarine lifeguards who rescued so many Navy pilots in WWII (including President George Herbert Walker Bash). Most recently, it is home to the Marine Corps Aviation Bell Tower, which has become a popular venue for local veteran's events and ceremonies. Our Park continues to grow. A Revolutionary War Memorial has been approved and will shortly join our other memorials. It will fill a gap of omission at the Park, honoring those whose sacrifice gave Americans a Nation worth defending. The next gap to be filled will be a memorial to honor the current generation of Americans who are fighting the Global War on Terror. Our community is steeped in military tradition and enriched with a strong military presence. The full range of service, sacrifice, duty and honor that comes with military service is amply illustrated in the example of our own citizens. This park is dedicated to the memories of those who sacrificed their lives in the defense of this nation.

Fabulous memorial We had just been to Washington dc and this park was very similar but smaller and less walking. Especially loved the eagle with the steel beam from 911 towers.

Small park (took about an hour) but definitely worth the hot sun. Great statues and history. They have a Vietnam Wall which took up most of the time because I looked for my uncle. Loves the experience and its free!

For a small scale memorial this is definitely one of the better that I’ve seen. And I’ve been to DC where they have the big ones, highly recommend

A very nice tribute to our heroes. Replica of Vietnam wall is excellent. I wish it had a directory though. All services and struggles are honored. In a very nice park like setting near the bay.

This Park honors all veterans. It is both beautiful and somber at the same time. A good place to walk for exercise and also a good place to sit and reflect.

Great place to walk, path goes around a large pond. There is nothing for little kids to do here though.
