Created By: Matt Parbs


Memorial Flag Pole, Riverview Park—East end of 5th Avenue south at river Levee; 1930; Leonard Crunelle, Sculptor; Cast by A. M. Art Bronze Foundry, Jules Berchem & Son, Chicago. The Memorial Flag Pole has a sculptured base of cast bronze human figures. The original flag pole of wood has been replaced with one of aluminum. Originally located on axis with 5th Avenue South and in a formal setting, the flag pole was relocated and a new setting designed by VISTA for the Corps of Engineers, together with construction required for the new levee. The flag pole base incorporates heroic statues commemorating the Veterans of World War I. The new retaining walls and siting are a separate memorial to Veterans of World War II, the Korean War, and the Viet Nam War.
