Veterans Memorial Park
Almost every community in Wisconsin has a memorial dedicated to local men and women who have served in our nation’s military. These are places where visitors can show honor, remember, and quietly reflect upon the service and sacrifice of their neighbors. Madison has a meaningful veterans memorial located in a beautiful city park.
Backstory and Context
Veterans’ Memorial Park, located on the southwest side, is the only city operated veterans’ memorial in Madison. The national flag, POW/MIA flag, and flags of our branches of service fly over a blue reflective glass pool. The memorial also includes a pergola and plaza, seating, and a walkway featuring personalized bricks with the names of veterans.
In addition to the veterans’ memorial, the park also features trails for walking and biking, a playground, and tennis and basketball courts. It is a wonderful place to honor our veterans and enjoy the freedom that they served to protect.
