Fayetteville tapped as home for N.C. Veteran’s Park

Work is slated to start November ’09 on the first stage of the North Carolina Veterans Park . The 18.3-acre park will honor veterans from all services across the state. The first phase will have three sections, plus a visitors’ center and a 150-seat amphitheater. The first section will honor life before joining the military, the second honors time in the service, and a final section celebrates life after the service.

Planned design components include small pools and fountains, trees and soil from around the state and a a long wall that grows taller from one end to the other, representing the mountains to the coast. The park is being designed so it has a different look from day to night and season to season.

Construction starts fall ’09 Freedom Trail, which will connect the new park with Freedom Memorial Park. Freedom Trail includes a landscaped promenade, with a broad sidewalk and streetlights and trees.
City officials are planning a grand opening July 4, 2011.
