Veterans Memorial Park

Veteran's Park honors area veterans for their service to their country. The Park is located in the Whitewater Gorge and can be accessed via automobile via the Johnson Street entrance or via foot over the pedestrian suspension bridge on Sim Hodgin Parkway or via the Whitewater Gorge walking/bike trail.

The site features nicely landscaped memorials to veterans of all wars, picnic facilities, the tanks that used to set on the courthouse lawn and plenty of green space for personal reflection as well as outdoor activities.
