“Great place for lunch too”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stopped here for a picnic lunch and were pleasantly surprised to see the memorial. It was a good opportunity to teach our children about the dangers of the ocean and how re remember our loved ones.
Picnic area was great too. nice area to stop with a group if you've packed a lunch. some small trails and plenty of picnic tables with benches.

“Don't miss this area!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

The Memorial is sobering as people don't realize how dangerous fishing in the Pacific can be. See also the memorial in Depoe Bay. But this is also a great picnic park and viewing area with perhaps the best view of the bridge and a really great interpretive area. Truly one of my favorite spots in Newport if not the entire Oregon coast! If the light house is open, usually late mornings to early afternoon, it's a must see! Wonderful volunteers, amazing history and absolutely spectacular views. Access this area right at the south side of the bridge. Well marked.

“A beautiful sanctuary”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Had no idea this was there when I went before, but we saw it this last trip. Very nice to have a place where you can cast your thoughts outside yourself. It is a beautiful place. A beautiful bay. Perfect.

“So neat and so sad...”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

I have been to Newport almost 20 times and always visit alllll the lighthouses. Then one day while visiting the Yaquina Bay lighthouse I noticed it! There is a place to sit and just think about the ones who lost their lives and the ones who lost loved ones. Neat and sad!
