Westerville's First Responders Park was first dedicated in 2010 to honor our first responders. In 2019, the park was expanded to further serve the community of Westerville, the Central Ohio Region and all first responders by honoring their courage and resilience.

Centerpiece to this park has always been and remains a section of steel known as "C-40" from the North Tower of the World Trade Center that fell during the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

The memorial wall and fountain carry the names of our local heroes.

"The Crossing," a sculpture that honors fallen Westerville firefighter, David Theisen, proudly stands in the Southwest corner of the park. In 1998, David was killed while battling a fire in Crooksville, Ohio.

On February 10, 2018, Westerville Division of Police Officers Anthony P. Morelli and Eric Joering were killed in the line of duty.
