A Brief History

Veterans Memorial Park was established on April 28, 1976.  The original park was established in celebration of the Bicentennial anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

In 2023, as part of SUNY Niagara’s ongoing commitment to Veteran Services, the park underwent a transformation. The standalone monument was relocated and expanded. Now, this special space pays homage to the past and embraces the future while celebrating Niagara County’s armed forces.

Veterans Memorial Park at SUNY Niagara was unveiled on November 9, 2023 and stands as a living memorial, symbolizing the commitment to honor and remember the sacrifices made by brave individuals in times of conflict. It helps us remember the sacrifices that shaped our nation’s path, where the bravery echoes for many years.
