Description

Marking the south entrance to Liberty Community Plaza, "Veterans Garden" by Artist Susan Narduli is a communal space to gather, reflect and honor the nation's veterans. Key elements of the design include a dedication wall, a grove of ginkgo trees, planted roses, concrete benches and a path of engraved pavers inscribed with the names of local community members who have served or now serve in the armed forces. The garden is a lasting tribute to the men and women who have defended this country during times of war and peace.
