Stumbled across this park and glad we did. We spend about 30 minutes taking pictures and reading the scriptures dedicated to the men and women who fought in the wars. I recommend all people visit this park.

This memorial park contained a replica of the Vietnam Wall that is in Washington, D.C. There were statues in tribute to Vietnam and Korea. Across the street is a National Memorial to Missing Children.

This is one of the most moving memorials I have been to. The Wall looks so much like the Wall in DC and the Korea, WWI, WWII and Vietnam Memorials are beautiful. There just aren't words to say how moving it was to be there. We planned our trip around a visit to this park and were not disappointed. You... More

It is awesome to have this memorial here in Pensacola. Our veterans earned and deserve longstanding displays of appreciation for their sacrifices and service!!! This park is well designed. Monuments, statues, memorials are beautifully sculpted. Memorials for WW1, WW2, Korean, & Vietnam Wars plus a monument dedicated to Submarine Veterans are all here. It is well maintained. When one takes... More

The Park originated with, and is anchored by, a replica of the National Vietnam Memorial traveling wall, which is half scale to the Memorial in Washington. It is the only permanent replica of that wall. Stand at the apex and you will feel the presence of those 58,000+ names. I very much disagree with the reviewer who felt no emotion... More

As a Pensacola local, I have watched Veteran's Memorial Park grow over the years. While it is sad to see how many names are on the replica Vietnam wall, it is a beautiful display. Changes have been to add the Korean War, WWII, and other memorials within the block of the park. The park is simply beautiful and is a... More

This is an awesome Memorial to those who have served in the Armed Forces. All veterans should be proud. The smaller replica of the Vietnam Veterans Wall is very impressive. The entire park is very well kept, were told they are always updating and adding to the site. Very relaxing walk through the park seeing our history. Pensacola should be... More

My husband is a veteran and what a nice way to honor veterans. The park is well kept and a nice place to walk or relax. Well worth the time spent.

This is a very interesting and educational site. The "Wall South" is a smaller replica of the Viet Nam War Memorial Wall in Washington. DC. There is a memorial to WWI that gives a chronology of the War in Europe and in the Pacific. The bronze statues honoring WW II service men and women are some of the best you... More

This park was beautiful and full of history! We hope to go back someday and get to browse longer. We only had a brief introduction while on a Segway tour.
