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 is one of many testaments to Pensacola's dedication to respecting and remembering military history and veterans. Very well maintained with ambitious displays. There are no play grounds for small children, but the memorials are interesting enough for the children and there are plenty of pathways. I would give it 4 stars, but there were sections that were close to traffic and there was a large storm control pond in the middle, both of which could have been a non issue if our 3 small children weren't there.

You can see the Veterans Memorial Wall, along with other veterans displays. The grounds are neat, clean and well-kept.

I love it because of the wall.. I went there to see if I could find my cousin name on the wall who died in Vietnam. This park is beautiful.

Very nice park commemorating Vets from World War 1 and 2 as well as service members from the Vietnam War with a smaller replica of The Wall South like they have in Washington D.C. & Korean War statues. I believe the maintenance of the park is solely done by donations. Very nice and totally worth a visit.
