Veterans’ Memorial

On November 11, 2000, a Veterans’ Memorial was dedicated at the entrance of Arab City Park. The Memorial is in tribute and dedication to the men and women of our community that have served our country. It was erected by City government in honor of all veterans, especially in memory of those who gave their all.

The memorial includes a black marble monument with bronze plaques commemorating each branch of service:

  • United States Army
  • United States Navy
  • United States Marine Corps
  • United States Air Force

Original proposed drawing that was presented to the City Council in November, 2017. No final plans have been made at this time.

Memorial Pavers 
Brick memorial pavers are available for purchase, and will be placed around the Veterans Monument at the Park in phases, or per every 100 pavers sold.
