Overview
This three acre park is nestled in an east side neighborhood, adjacent to the former Douglas Aircraft Plant. The park includes a walking path with a historical time line etched in the pavers along with symbols and quotations detailing the events of World War II.

A memorial acknowledging that "All Gave Some and Some Gave All" during World War II in the military and the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), is tucked into a grove of trees and surrounded by flowers -- giving visitors a tranquil spot at which to sit and reflect upon the sacrifices made.

Visitors can experience the park by listening to a guided tour, 1940's music and radio broadcasts via their own cellphones.
