Veteran's Memorial Park

Plymouth, Michigan 48170, United States

Created By: Volunteer


In 1994, John Pappas, of American Legion Post 112, proposed the relocating of the “Our Lady” Civil War Memorial, donated by the Harry Bradner family in 1917, to a more prominent area: the city park in front of Central Middle School. This idea blossomed into the current Veterans Memorial Park.

The various memorials and tributes in this park have been moved several times, finally to be collected in this central Plymouth resting place for all to experience. The park was dedicated in 1996.

Memorial Day is a special time for remembrances which are held in the park every year.

Brick pavers honor family members and friends with a lasting remembrance of name, rank, and branch of service. Donations from the bricks benefit the Veterans Memorial Park.
