Veterans Memorial Park
This Birmingham park pays homage to all of Alabama's Veterans who fought in an American war in the 20th Century. A temple is the central feature with thirty six columns each with a bronze relief designed by an Alabama artist. Eleven thousand names of soldiers who gave their life are listed on the temple wall.
Set in a wooded site, the temple is accessed by a meandering path accented with native flowering plants. On axis with the temple is a flagpole that is visible from the highway.
