The home of Wall South, the first permanent replica of the National Vietnam War Memorial. Founded in 1992 the Park has since grown and prospered. It now includes a WWI Memorial, a WWII Memorial, a Korean War Memorial, and a running series of plaques to honor local warriors who have fallen in the Global War on Terror. There is also a Purple Heart Memorial and a monument to the submarine lifeguards who rescued so many Navy pilots in WWII (including President George Herbert Walker Bash). Most recently, it is home to the Marine Corps Aviation Bell Tower, which has become a popular venue for local veteran's events and ceremonies. Our Park continues to grow. A Revolutionary War Memorial has been approved and will shortly join our other memorials. It will fill a gap of omission at the Park, honoring those whose sacrifice gave Americans a Nation worth defending. The next gap to be filled will be a memorial to honor the current generation of Americans who are fighting the Global War on Terror. Our community is steeped in military tradition and enriched with a strong military presence. The full range of service, sacrifice, duty and honor that comes with military service is amply illustrated in the example of our own citizens. This park is dedicated to the memories of those who sacrificed their lives in the defense of this nation.

Memorials to Wars including a life size Vietnam memorial. This park does itself proud by remembering our fine men and women who have served and died to protect our freedom.

This is very small place but very nice. This memorial has been here for quite a few years now, But it was long overdue. Our Vietnam Vets have a nice memorial to visit and reflect on friends and family lost. The Helicopter really was a fitting symbol that complimented The Wall of names very nicely. My humble thanks to all... More

We loved this free park. Many moving tributes to those who have served and protected our country. Be sure to walk across the street to see the Children's sculpture.

This is a great tribute to veterans of US wars. The park is such a great national treasure in this size city. There is something for everyone. The views from the park are great, as well.

A visit to this place, is a testament to all the sacrifices and dedication of our military. It's a beautiful quiet place to visit on the eastern edge of downtown Pensacola, on the shore of the bay.

Our Vietnam Dustoff group toured the wall on a warm and clear Saturday morning in October. We found the 'Wall" to be an excellent replica of the wall in DC. It was not difficult to find the names of our lost crew members. The entire grounds gave a sense of being very hallow. All of the various military wars were... More

I've been here several times. The replica Vietnam Memorial wall is inspiring. A lot of other nice tributes that allow you to think and reflect on regarding those who've served and those who've supported them. A nice learning opportunity for our up and coming young Americans.

As incredible place of peace and solitude. Each memorial, whether a replica or an original will stir your heart. Taking the time to recognize the sacrifice of others at each memorial may become emotionally overwhelming. You will not be alone. Comfort is found in tears, while the spirit of those lost provide a humble solitude.
