Fayetteville is proud to be the home of the North Carolina Veterans Park. The first state park dedicated to military veterans – young and old…living or deceased…from all branches of the Armed Services; Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard.
With its rich military heritage, Fayetteville is the perfect place to house the North Carolina Veterans Park. The city’s beautifully revitalized downtown is a fitting location, given the spirit of renewal embodied in the park. What’s more, North Carolina is proud to call itself the “Most Military Friendly” state, and the Veterans Park incorporates many natural and architectural elements that represent the state. Symbolic features pay homage to the veterans from all 100 counties of North Carolina and represent the citizens who support them.
The primary theme of the North Carolina Veterans Park (NCVP) is a “Veteran’s Journey: life before, during, and after service.” The secondary theme is rebirth and healing. This park represents that redevelopment.
A 3,500 square foot Visitors Center anchors the park near the entrance. The Visitors Center includes a Service Ribbon Wall made of fused glass, representing every service medal awarded since the Civil War, as well as a unique chandelier made from 33,500 “dog tags” (service member identification tags). There is also an interactive globe that allows you to pinpoint a location and learn about the heroic events that happened there.
Outside the Visitors Center is the North Carolina Soils Wall, built with soil collected from the state’s 100 counties. Native soils from North Carolina are featured and used throughout the park. Numerous fountains and sculptures help tell the story of a service member’s journey through their military career and beyond.

Very nice and well kept grounds. Quiet and peaceful. If you play Pokemon go there are numerous pokestops through out the grounds and 2 gyms. Please do not be disrespectful if you do play as you ride through here, it a cemetary.
