Being in Astoria on Memorial weekend, we felt if appropriate to visit the memorial and it was worth it. It was quite touching to see the flowers on the various memorial plaques and to see the community support of the families that have lost someone.

very moving tribute to all fisherman, seafarers and coast guard men and women who have lost their lives leaving from the Columbia River. good place for quiet reflection and a small insight to how important the river/ocean lifestyle is to this town

This is a small, lovely outdoor Memorial to all those men and women whose lives interacted with the sea. It's almost underneath the big Astoria-Megler bridge. We enjoy this nice spot every time we visit. This spring, the trees near the picnic tables had pretty pink blossoms. The views are spectacular. It's easy to reach via the trolley or the... More

This memorial was just a short walk from our hotel, it was very moving to read the names of those individuals lost, who's lives had been spent working on or near the water... A must see if visiting Astoria...

This is a very nicely laid out and thoughtful memorial park right along the Columbia River and just under the Astoria-Megler Bridge. We especially loved the views of the bridge from the park. If you need refreshment the Three Cups Coffee House right across the street is great for coffee and/or lunch.

This Museum is great for kids and adults alike. Very well done and full of interactive exhibits which tell the story of maritime in the Americas from early on til now. The abundance of video and recorded conversations of live experiences of those who have gone though the storms makes it all come to life and be real. Allow at... More

The memorial is art, and history, consolation and rememberance. someone was at or around the memorial almost every time i walked by it. couples with children, families with dogs, bicyclists just resting, or waiting or visiting loved ones memorialized there.

Our hotel was under the bridge just near this memorial park and it was a great place to just relax in the evening and enjoy the summer weather on the river front. When the bridge is done being refinished, it will be a nice counterpoint to the quiet of the park, which has a fountain, a lawn, picnic area, a... More

Nice little place to visit along the river walk some of the plaques are very sobering and some are quite funny but a great place to spend some time
