Veterans Memorial Pavilion
There are 222 pavers on the Memorial Wall honoring Veterans and loved ones from the Civil War to those serving up to 2012. The main sign is in thanks to Raymond L. Bourque who's generosity made the wall and pavilion possible.
 
Regarding South Attleboro Memorial Wall. Beginning in September 2010, American Legion Post 312 formed a committee to take the lead in coordinating a community effort along with other Veterans and community organizations and members to build a memorial wall and pavilion at South Attleboro Veterans Memorial Park. This project has been one way for the Veterans of Attleboro to give back to the community that has been so generous to them. It is their hope that the Veterans Memorial Pavilion and South Attleboro Memorial Wall is enjoyed by the citizens of Attleboro for many generations to come.
