Veterans Memorial Park was created with the assistance of local Veterans Organizations, which provided the resources to construct a beautiful veterans memorial for commemorative ceremonies. Located along Library Lane, Veterans Memorial Park is easily accessible from the Portage District Library parking lot.Individuals and businesses who donate have the option of having a brick engraved in honor of a veteran or with the name of the sponsor. It is estimated that over 1,100 bricks have been used in constructing the walkways.
Veterans Memorial Park was dedicated on November 11, 2005. The memorial is 40 feet and consists of five separate stones, four flagpoles, lighting and landscaping features. The V-shaped center stone, at a height of seven feet, displays emblems of the Marine Corps, Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. Engraved on stones placed on either side of the center stone are various quotes honoring those who served in the United States Military which can be viewed along the brick walkways in front of each stone.
