Veterans Memorial Park was developed as a memorial for all veterans of the United States Armed Services and as a tribute to the Northington General Hospital, one of the largest military hospitals in the world at the end of WWII. The park is also the site of such amenities as an M60-A3 tank, the Purple Heart Memorial and the mast of the USS Tuscaloosa. The "Honor Roll of Veterans," an ongoing project of Veterans Memorial Park, serves as a monument to honor veterans.
The Veterans Memorial Park Committee, working with representatives of the City of Tuscaloosa, PARA and the private sector, created an educational veterans park. The Park preserves a historical site, honors our veterans and keeps our veterans' memory alive. The Committee is a group of more than twenty Tuscaloosa veterans who represent all branches of the military service, all wars and conflicts since WWII, and all the fraternal and social veterans' organizations in Tuscaloosa County.
The Veterans Memorial Park honors those who risked their lives to defend our freedom. It is an invaluable educational resource for our children and for future generations. Please consider supporting the Veterans Memorial Park Endowment Fund on a regular basis, with a generosity that reflects the Park's significance.
