This World War I memorial was built in 1956 to honor those from our city who were lost in this war.
Each of their names is beautifully displayed.
The center is inscribed with:
In the days of triumph and peace it is wise to remember the cost of victory. Let us resolve that the sacrifices made by these men shall not be in vain. Let us, the living, pledge ourselves to preserve and protect for their children and ours the freedom and liberties for which they gave their lives.
This is The Hiker created by Theo Alice Ruggles Kitson to commemorate the American soldiers who fought in the Spanish-American War.
Over 50 copies of this sculpture can be seen across the United States.
The park has wonderfully kept grounds that change through the season. These photos were taken at the beginning of the summer.
Of course it also boasts pretty flowers. I love these below with purple fuzzies.
Well I hoped you enjoyed this bit of green space in our city.
Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead! ~Val
