Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

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.

We visited at dusk and it was very moving. The statues are well-marked and the park is very clean and pretty.

My dad is a WWII vet. We really enjoyed the tribute paid to all our veterans from the different wars. It was very meaningful to my dad. This park is in a beautiful setting, so tastefully done and educational.

Admiral Mason Park is truly a tribute to all Veterans. Set on one of the most beautiful sites in the area, the park overlooks the majestic Pensacola Bay. Each of the American Wars has an area in which you can learn and pay respect. The "Wall" is humbling, as is the areas of Korea, WW1 and WWII. A must see!!!

This park is located on the beautiful bay front drive in Pensacola, FL. This memorial is a very good example of the Citizenry acknowledging the one's who have sacrificed for our Freedoms. I strongly recommend everyone that visits Pensacola to set aside some time to visit this park to reflect on our past military and service men and women. You also have a great view of Pensacola Bay with the Port to your right and the three mile bridge spanning the bridge to the left.
