Veterans Park Wall

Veterans Park and Flags

Brownsville Veterans Park is a beautiful living memorial park that focuses on large concave concrete slabs. Engraved into the concrete are the names of Brownsville area veterans.

Names from World War II to Afghanistan are included. The center of the memorial contains three large flag poles centered on a concrete base with a start embedded within it.

Also in the park is a memorial to Medal of Honor Recipient, and Brownsville native, Sergeant Jose M Lopez.

The monument has been a project created for veterans by veterans.

The American Legion aimed to make the park an educational extension of the library by creating two murals showing the locations of conflicts from the 18th century to present on world map.


Brownsville Veterans Park wall has more than 50,000 names.
