  • We stopped at the Lejeune Memorial Gardens while passing through Jacksonville. Beautiful gardens and memorials to the men and women who courageously served their county. The Lejeune Memorial...

  • Beautifully done park. Wide sidewalk throughout. Also lighting along walkway so should be well lit at night. There is a 9/11 memorial, Vietnam memorial, Beirut memorial and Montford memorial. All are well done. The park is very peaceful and offers the perfect place to remember and honor those who have paid the highest price for our freedoms. The Vietnam memorial is exceptionally beautiful with names appearing on glass panels that surround the fountain in the center.
  • From WWII to the War in Iraq, this memorial site is a beautiful, quite, and peaceful place to learn, walk, pay tribute, and remember what it took, and what it takes to keep this country free. This is a very powerful and moving tribute to all of those that defended our colors with their lives, and a place where they can be appreciated and remembered for their service and contributions. From the thousands of names etched in glass walls around a tranquil water fountain, to the cut beam from the towers of the 9/11 attack, all ages and generations of warrior and civilian are welcome to come and walk amoungst these magnificent structures and statues. This memorial is full of benches, flowers, trees, wide side walks, shade, water, and information to read on the conflicts and names of those that perished from them. There is handicap access to the entire park. You are very likely to run into veterans amoungst the memorials as well.
