I enjoyed walking around the memorial plaza near the entrance to the shipyard. It is nicely designed and well maintained. I liked reading about the history of the submarine USS Parche and panel of ships repaired during World War II.

This is a nice memorial near the ferry terminal and just down the street from the naval museum and shipyard. It is a lovely place.

Wow. We walked through this plaza on a recent trip to Bremerton. It's beautiful. Amazing large natural and polished stones inter woven with modern steel sculpture with historical information. Great water feature as well. Don't miss this quick little gem in Bremerton.

The plaza is a great place to take a moment away from the crowd when it's busy by the ferry. The water is soothing and the memorial is nice.

Discovered this walking to lunch, and it was a joy. Good information plaques showing women who stepped up to build ships when the men were off fighting. Quite a nice place to enjoy the sun.

It's got things to read fountains to take pictures and selfies at, it's a relatively small amount of time to take to visit here and maybe go get a bit to eat across the street at Bremerton bar and grill

Built into a hill for two blocks in front of the Puget Sound Shipyard shows the history of its employees and the facility. Got a fountain and some waterfall it's very interesting and respectful
