The veterans park sits on over one acre adjacent to the town municipal building. It includes two major loops of stamped concrete walkways featuring a central walkway where a main monument is situated framed by a 50 ft. flag pole flying a 10ft. by 15ft. Flag. On either side of this walkway are inlaid granite pavers with inscriptions to veterans. Behind the flag pole is a monument dedicated to K-9s with a laser image. On the north loop is a monument inscribed to World War II veterans featuring a laser image of the Iwo Jima Flag Raising and a monument dedicated to the Vietnam veterans with a special inscription and laser image. The center of the north loop has a Navy jet on static display. It is a T2 Buckeye which was a trainer jet responsible for the training of over 11,000 Marine and Navy aviators. Outside the north loop is a section of steel from the South Tower of the World Trade Centers.
