Veterans Memorial Addition Underway at Library Garden Park
Last week construction began at Library Garden Park to significantly enhance the City’s current Veterans Memorial. The enhancements will include individual monuments and lighted flag poles for 5 branches of the military and POWs; a lighted Battle Cross sculpture; a reflection area with dedication bricks for loved ones; a Veterans Memorial entry wall/sign; and many decorative attributes including military insignia, quotes of valor and honor, dedication plaques, and more. This site will be a regional destination for communities and families in the area to reflect and honor those that have dedicated so much to our country. Exisiting engraved bricks/tiles will remain intact and untouched. Be sure to follow the City’s Facebook account (@BellflowerCityHall) for updates.
The Parks & Recreation Department is also taking applications for the Bellflower Honors program, which offers an opportunity to honor past and present military personnel from Bellflower by dedicating a street pole banner. Click here for more details.
