Memorial Park – Veteran’s Memorial

Huntington, Indiana

The City of Huntington desired to create a new Veteran’s Memorial within Memorial Park envisioned for use for ceremonies and other gatherings to honor all branches of the military. Accessibility was a key aspect of the design which included a new pedestrian bridge, asphalt trail, concrete walks, and decorative pavements. A Sherman Tank previously located within the park was moved to the Memorial. The City acquired a T-33 Shooting Star jet to serve as the centerpiece of the space. Other improvements included interpretive plaques, flagpoles, decorative lighting, and plantings. A community group sponsored and designed a Purple Heart Monument for incorporation. It is anticipated the Memorial will continue to grow through expansion of dedication plaques and pavers in coming years.

DLZ services included survey, preliminary design documents, construction documents, permitting, bidding assistance, and construction administration services.
