Veterans Memorial – Tempe

brought to you by:

The city of Tempe is committed to the preservation and rehabilitation of the abutment and its integration into the fabric and activity of the park.

Currently under construction, the memorial will consist of three main areas.  In addition to the Ash Avenue Bridge Abutment which will function as an overlook, the Veterans’ Parade will feature 80 silhouette panels of steel representing veterans of each branch of service throughout history.  Made of laser-cut steel, they will outline marching officers, enlisted men and women in full dress and battle fatigues.  Finally, the Court of Service will be a focal point and an area where visitors may honor veterans and reflect upon how they have served our country.
