Pocket park honors veterans

Tuesday, November 9, 2021 by Tai Moses

Three war memorials are being relocated to a new home in a pocket park designed to honor veterans, at the intersection of Atlanta and Veterans Drive, adjacent to the American Legion. According to a news release from the parks department, the Veterans Pocket Park will express “a respectful and peaceful sense of place” as well as provide space for events such as ceremonies, dedications and holiday observances. The monuments will be displayed in an accessible manner that “includes the ability to touch and read inscriptions.” Additional memorials may be added in the future. A ribbon-cutting for the new park will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, at 2200 Veterans Drive.
