Florence Veterans Park
Paying homage to those who serve our country.
Dedicated in 2008, the Florence Veterans Park pays homage to those who are serving or have served in our armed services with a 'Wall of Honor' and several monuments for the wars of the 20th century.
The Florence Veterans Park Feature Memorial was voted the 2009 international award winner in the Public/Civic Memorial category at the annual Conference of the American Institute of Commemorative Art. The park's memorial, a three pillar center obelisk, was co-designed by Brown Memorials of Florence, and local sculptor Alex Palkovich. The 30-ft tall monument features an American bald eagle, designed and cast in bronze by Palkovich. Bronze medallions representing all six branches of the US military complete the memorial.
The park also features an amphitheater surrounded by commemorative flags, a water wall with pool, a steel wall with Oath of Enlistment, and a beautifully landscaped circular trellis area.
