Inscription.  On June 2, 2003, at the request of local military veterans, the Town of Abingdon set aside, dedicated and designated this 13 acre tract of land as Veterans Memorial Park to be a permanent place to recognize and pay tribute to American military veterans and all our servicemen and women who have given and continue to give their lives for our freedom.

The park gives special recognition and tribute to those American servicemen and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice of their lives, their liberty and their pursuit of happiness in order that others may be free.

The park is an ongoing effort supported by local veteran and civic organizations, businesses, citizens, the Town of Abingdon and Washington County, Virginia.

Veterans Memorial Park Foundation of Abingdon/Washington County, VA, Inc., a 501(3)c non-profit foundation, oversees the design, development and funding of Veterans Memorial Park.

Veterans Memorial Park is a hands-on memorial park. The park will include:
• Path of Honor – walking trail • Picnic pavilions honoring each branch of the armed forces • Wall of Names – Washington Countians killed
