Veteran’s Memorial Park is located in the 200 block of North James Street. With its “twin” park, Gansevoort Park, it forms a unique and important ceremonial space along the North James Street corridor. Both parks are special use parks, designed as memorials and have historical significance within the community.

Each park, which is entirely passive in usage, is designed around a central monument with diagonal walkways. The parks also make use of this design to incorporate a series of benches and litter receptacles. These parks are open from dawn to dusk.

there are periodic services held at the parks as well as usage during Honor America Days as well as the annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony. Veterans Memorial Park also features several flagpoles that display the flags of the major branches of the armed services:  Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard as well as the American Flag and a flag for soldiers who were POW/MIAs.

On Memorial Day 2014, a dedication ceremony is planned to celebrate the new iron archway that will be installed, thanks to an ongoing fundraising project driven by the Veteran’s Council.
