This is a worthwhile attraction to visit for a nice sceenic walk along the Arkansas river. It is easy to get to with adequate parking. I especially like the South Vietnam memorial since I know how hard the former SVN soldiers who worked with others...More

We’re walking the WaterWalk and happened upon this park. Wow! Extensive and very well done. When you leave you’ll know more and appreciate the service of our Veterans more.

This little known park along the Arkansas River is a nice spot to visit. I highly recommend a leisurely stroll along the river and for you take time along the way to stop at the Veterans' Memorial Park.

We happened on this by chance while strolling along the Arkansas river. It was a nice half hour diversion that sat well with me because of military service by my father and family.

Bronze statues highlight this memorial. The details are exacting even down to the equipment they carry. As a veteran, I felt this was a very well done memorial.

What better way to say, "Thank you" to those who have gave us our freedom! One thing that bothered me was that someone disrespected some of the plaques that are on display. So, we felt thankful that we could still pay our respects to those...More

There is parking around, I didn't have any problem finding a space. Would not recommend big RV or trailer in tow going there though, as it is around multiple buildings etc. I didn't see a specific lot for the park.
