Grounds of Remembrance in Dublin Veterans Park
The Grounds of Remembrance in Dublin Veterans Park is a tribute to the men and women of the armed forces who have courageously served our country in times of war and peace.
Designed by PLANT Architect Inc., as a place for reflection and as a place to recognize those who have defended our freedom, visitors are encouraged to utilize the features of the Grounds of Remembrance to enhance their overall experience.
In addition to being reserved as a place for reflection, the Grounds of Remembrance also serves as the ceremonial backdrop for Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day observances.
The Grounds of Remembrance is dedicated in the honor of all that have made sacrifices to defend our freedom; from the first 16 Dublin volunteers who joined the 46th Regiment of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry in October 1861 to the men and women who are serving today and their families who give up so much to support them.
Dublin Veterans Park is located on approximately one acre of land in Historic Dublin near the Dublin Public Library, along the Indian Run. The map below shows the Park’s location in Historic Dublin and also describes the key features of the Grounds of Remembrance.
