This now nationally famous Memorial Monument stands proudly in a beautiful public park on the shores of the mighty Niagara River, a few miles upstream of Niagara Falls. It was officially dedicated June 8th 1996 by Radm. David Nash, Officer in charge of all U.S. Naval Construction Forces. It is an outstanding example of the Seabee "CAN-DO" spirit. The monument was built by the members of the NSVA Island X-8 NY, and was financed by donations for space on the wall for Seabee's names and units. It also has a section for Military friends of Seabee's as well as a section for civilian friends of Seabee's.
The model of Caterpillar Tractor here is tracked like a typical bulldozer. Tracks keep more contact with the surface area and have better traction. They were the equipment of choice for the U.S. Navy Seabees.
Fisherman's Park, located along the Niagara River, River Road, North Tonawanda is open to the public, dawn to dusk.
