This little known park along the Arkansas River is a nice spot to visit. I highly recommend a leisurely stroll along the river and for you take time along the way to stop at the Veterans' Memorial Park.

We happened on this by chance while strolling along the Arkansas river. It was a nice half hour diversion that sat well with me because of military service by my father and family.

Bronze statues highlight this memorial. The details are exacting even down to the equipment they carry. As a veteran, I felt this was a very well done memorial.

What better way to say, "Thank you" to those who have gave us our freedom! One thing that bothered me was that someone disrespected some of the plaques that are on display. So, we felt thankful that we could still pay our respects to those...More

My son and I went for a walk along the riverfront. We took some time to stop at this memorial. We appreciate opportunities to think of those who gave their lives to protect our freedoms.

We enjoyed walking along the river and seeing all the different memorials for each branch of service and also each different war. It is very tasteful and respectable and nice along the river.

The Park is very tastefully set up. It is an must see. I am particularly moved being a USMC veteran myself. I have been there on occasion and see young people ask their parents of the meaning and am proud to say I think that...More

There is parking around, I didn't have any problem finding a space. Would not recommend big RV or trailer in tow going there though, as it is around multiple buildings etc. I didn't see a specific lot for the park.
