We stopped to visit the Park and walked the waterfront. The Veterans Memorial is quite touching. Local Medal of Honour recipients are mentioned here with the Vietnam War at the forefront. Never forget

Get out, stretch your legs and check out the tank, helicopter and artillery as well as the dedications to our veterans. Just around the corner from the visitor's center.

If you enjoy researching the veterans of every war, this is a great place to go to see who, from, Louisiana, has been involved in every war. On the opposite end of the park is the memorial to 9/11.

Very cool monuments, and it's in a great location. Right as you come into Lake Charles. Free parking to walk around and view all the monuments. Really cool.

This lake-edge park is marked by a huge American flag and has a statue of a Medal of Honor winner as its focus, along with memorial blocks and a few pieces of armament. On most days, kite flyers and folks feeding ducks and shore birds...More
