The Shenandoah City Council has allocated $800,000 for the development of a new veterans memorial park, as approved during their March 27 meeting. John Tipton, a senior landscape architect from Landology, presented the design concept for the park located at 149 Pine Forest Drive, outlining features such as metal plates for veterans’ names, intersecting walkways connecting to Vision Park detention pond, a “battlefield cross” statue, life-sized soldier steel silhouettes, guardrail lighting, and beacon lights for military flags. The park will also showcase flags from various military branches and other notable flags. Tipton emphasized the park’s unique location and its anticipated popularity among visitors.

The park’s design phase has been finalized, and construction is set to commence after awarding the bid to Landology for construction oversight and Landscape Art Inc. for the actual construction. Project activities are anticipated to commence during the summer.
