Veterans Memorial Garden

Veterans Memorial Garden

Located west of the library, the Veterans Memorial Garden of Westland was established to honor America’s veterans.

The central monument consists of ten granite panels noting twelve wars throughout American history. The Walk of History features memorials explaining the history of each of these wars, with one dedicated to prisoners of war and soldiers missing in action.

The Memorial Garden was dedicated in a ceremony on Veterans Day 2013 after more than six years of planning and fundraising by the Westland Veterans Association. The project was spearheaded by the late Ken Mehl, a Vietnam veteran and the former president of the Westland Veterans Association.

For more information, including a map of the garden, view the Westland Veterans Association’s Veterans Memorial Garden brochure below.
