  • The bench in the photo says it best. This is a park to honor and remember the veterans. But actively, not like a cenotaph. Walk and share. Read the inscriptions and various plaques and monuments. This...  more »

  • Beautiful park day or night. Very peaceful and somber with the Vietnam Memorial Wall, a scaled down version of the very same in Washington DC. It is a great tribute to those who have all. Great place to bring family and friends.
  • Great memorial in the middle of town. Shows respect and provides information on the different branches of military. Quiet and well designed, it is respectful and located well. You'll definitely miss it if you're not looking
  • Beautiful and very patriotic Park!!! Beautifully done memorials to each military branch and each War and Operation that the USA has been involved with! Some memorials were in memory of the local military men and women who were injured or sacrificed their lives for our Country's freedom!!! Well done!!! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed strolling threw this park! There was also a pond with some ducks in it, with room around the pond to spread out a blanket and enjoy a picnic!!
  • Lots of beautiful views and well placed walks. Well maintained and clean, but no bathroom facilities. Great park for honoring our veterans.
  • Lovely Park and Memorials, very peaceful and relaxing to walk around this park with my hubby, family and friends. Enjoy feeding the ducks too!! Merry Christmas!!

Where to stay in Pensacola

You'll find places to stay throughout Pensacola, but reserve a place downtown for the best local atmosphere and access to nearby beaches. Downtown Pensacola is on the water, and it features a collection of inns and bed and breakfasts in historical buildings and upscale tower hotels. The national chain hotels and motels along Interstate 10 by the Davis Highway and Pensacola Blvd. exits provide budget-friendly options within driving distance of downtown. It might be tempting to choose one of the budget motels along Highway 90 just west of downtown, but these reside in a rundown area. If you're arriving to spend most of your time by the ocean, stay on Pensacola Beach or Perdido Key, which sit just outside the city limits.
