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

Memorial is near Holiday Inn Express and under the Astoria Bridge. It is a peaceful place to sit and reflect on all our sailors and the trials they endured while you look out onto the water.

We stopped to let the children walk by the waterside, and realized what it was after we stopped. Very nicely done memorial wall, and a peaceful place to sit and watch the water traffic and the bridge.

Very beautiful and peaceful. The River is right there, it's a nice memorial and then you can walk along the riverwalk and enjoy the day. I highly recommend this memorial when visiting Astoria.

Very nice memorial located under megler bridge. If you plan on riding the trolley its first stop is located very near to the memorial, with parking so it is a good place to start your day without the hassle of parking in downtown, which is more difficult when the market is going on on the weekends!

Mom and Dad lived in a wee cottage and also a cold water flat - both the cottage and house are still there! Thank you, Astoria,... More
