Dedicated on November 7, 1998, the Sumner County Veterans Park was designed and developed by Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 240 as a lasting tribute to the men and women from Sumner County who have served, and are serving, our country in war and peace.
The Park was designed to feature a Veterans Memorial, dedicated to all Sumner County men and women who answered their country’s call, WWI through Iraq, and who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
From a symbolic standpoint, the Sumner County Veterans Park is original, creative, inspirational and reflective of Sumner County’s pride in her veterans. It is a place of remembrance, honor and introspection, recognizing the sacrifices made by those who stood in harm’s way defending America’s freedom. It is also a place for those who waited at home for the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen to return.
From a practical standpoint, the Park was designed to be a community gathering place for the observation of Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day and other patriotic events. The Park’s design is complementary to the existing natural landscape. It reflects Sumner County’s strong sense of aesthetics, quality and community pride. In short, our Sumner County Veterans Park is distinctly . . . Sumner County.
