It's a nice place to see while in Philadelphia. It's a wall that remembers those that fought in the war. Very honorable.

This was a beautifully-maintained tribute to those Pennsylvanians who lost their lives in the Vietnam War. The landscaping was absolutely lovely, and the monument itself (with the associated parts) was well cared-for. This is a quiet, serene, lovely, shady place to slow down and reflect...More

One of the better Vietnam Veteran's Memorials in the country. Well thought and well maintained. The names of the service members from Philadelphia are carved into the walls. It is well lit at night so an evening visit is doable.

We visited the memorial as part of a walk along Penns landing. We passed through Spruce park with everyone enjoying the festivities to this quiet area. Such a contrast to the list of names of young people who died so far away

A cement monument showing the thousands of Americans who died during the Vietnam War. How many of these people were willing to sacrifice their lives and how many were not?

This memorial is a respectful tribute to those who gave the ultimate in the Vietnam War. Names are engraved along a half-circle wall; sketches, quotes, a map of southeast Asia, etc. are engraved upon other panels. There is plenty of space to walk around and...More

Have you ever been to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington? If you have, than you've been here. The only difference is that this is more local that that. It's still a very nice memorial, even if it is out of the way.
