Long Description:
This pretty little park is a peaceful place with several monuments and memorials to our veterans. It honors the veterans of Heard County who served and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

The peaceful little town has really invested time and money to make this an impressive and restful place for all to enjoy. I was taken aback by the amount of people who contributed to this park. The park is literally covered in brick pavers which were sold to finance the park.
Type of Memorial: Non-Specific Memorial

In Honor Of: This park is dedicated in memory and in honor of those who were called upon to put their lives on the line for our country.
