    St. Landry Parish Veterans Memorial Park

    After 10 years of planning, St. Landry Parish opened its Veterans Memorial Park in September 2014. It is a tribute to all veterans with a purpose of supporting, acknowledging and recognizing all military personnel, and to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country. The park is a quiet place unto itself, a place of education, a place of hope, a place of peace, serenity and beauty, a place for all of us.

    The Walk-Way of Remembrance - engraved bricks form a walkway that signifies remembrance of all military personnel from St. Landry Parish. The Walk-Way is flanked by the POW/MIA Flag, Louisiana State Flag and the St. Landry Parish Flag. The Flag of the United States is located in the center of the Walk-Way of Remembrance. The engraved bricks form extended walk-ways for supporters, civilians, and other non-military personnel. These walk-ways are symbols to future generations of the commitment and dedication of all supporters.

    Location: I-49, Exit Harry Guilbeau Rd and take right. Park is less than one mile on the left.
