I was expecting something on a larger scale. This is a work in progress. A well kept park, Lovely sculpturing, a fine memorial to those who served.

This park is one of many testaments to Pensacola's dedication to respecting and remembering military history and veterans. Very well maintained with ambitious displays. There are no play grounds for small children, but the memorials are interesting enough for the children and there are plenty of pathways. I would give it 4 stars, but there were sections that were close... More

You can see the Veterans Memorial Wall, along with other veterans displays. The grounds are neat, clean and well-kept.

I love it because of the wall.. I went there to see if I could find my cousin name on the wall who died in Vietnam. This park is beautiful.

Very nice park commemorating Vets from World War 1 and 2 as well as service members from the Vietnam War with a smaller replica of The Wall South like they have in Washington D.C. & Korean War statues. I believe the maintenance of the park is solely done by donations. Very nice and totally worth a visit.

We headed over the day before the Million Vet March. As vets, both my wife and I were very impressed with the park. There are several areas to quietly contemplate what Veterans have sacrificed to keep our country safe. I highly recommend visiting this park to anyone who is interested.

We enjoyed walking around the park and seeing the high quality monuments. The Wall South is worth the visit, and when you discover all the other monuments, it feels like winning a prize.

Veteran's Memorial Park is on the bay front in Pensacola, There are several small memorials to various groups of veterans as well as The Wall South, a smaller scale replica of the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in DC. The park actually includes a storm-water treatment pond that is beautiful with flowering plants and several fountains. It is a great place to... More
