The Elks have built a small memorial garden near their lodge hall at 601 W Pioneer Parkway in Arlington. The garden contains two monuments.

One is a tree with a small pink granite stone commemorating the Elks involvement in the Ulster, Northern Ireland, peace project of 2003.

A larger grey granite memorial, which sits in a small garden between the US and Texas flag poles, honors all veterans of US armed forces who served in whatever capacity, past, present, and future.
