About
The home of Wall South, the first permanent replica of the National Vietnam War Memorial. Founded in 1992 the Park has since grown and prospered. It now includes a WWI Memorial, a WWII Memorial, a Korean War Memorial, and a running series of plaques to honor local warriors who have fallen in the Global War on Terror. There is also a Purple Heart Memorial and a monument to the submarine lifeguards who rescued so many Navy pilots in WWII (including President George Herbert Walker Bash). Most recently, it is home to the Marine Corps Aviation Bell Tower, which has become a popular venue for local veteran's events and ceremonies. Our Park continues to grow. A Revolutionary War Memorial has been approved and will shortly join our other memorials. It will fill a gap of omission at the Park, honoring those whose sacrifice gave Americans a Nation worth defending. The next gap to be filled will be a memorial to honor the current generation of Americans who are fighting the Global War on Terror. Our community is steeped in military tradition and enriched with a strong military presence. The full range of service, sacrifice, duty and honor that comes with military service is amply illustrated in the example of our own citizens. This park is dedicated to the memories of those who sacrificed their lives in the defense of this nation.

Beautiful park.

I was looking forward to visiting this park. I was not let down. They did a wonderful job designing the park. It flows well, from one memorial to the next. It was a solemn visit. Highly recommend, we went through it all in about half an hour.

What a Very Peaceful Place to Honor Veterans
Feb 2020
This park is exceptionally SPECIAL.

Not only is it well laid laid out but its LOCATION speaks mightily for the citizens of Pensacola to have elected a group of leaders wise enough to place such a high priority on allocating this land. It's very close to the water and very close to the bridge to Gulf Breeze. The parking is sufficient and the park itself is quite large.

Anyone with veteran family members and certainly any veterans themselves should eagerly seek to visit this park and see for yourself how meaningful the experience will be.

The design and layout are impressive. The memorials are touching. While it's sad to know some of the fallen names, it's comforting to see them remembered.

Wonderful veterans park
Oct 2019
Being a veteran myself, my wife and I try and visit every veterans park we can. This one is superb in every way. It is easy to get to with parking, it is very well maintained and is very tastefully displayed. It was a pleasure to visit and our thanks to the city of Pensacola for this wonderful park and the Veterans groups that keep it going.

The park is really nice and pays a nice tribute to the military. My uncle name is on the wall. I have seen the one in DC and it was nice to see this one.
