This is a great memorial and has a paved ramp all the way to the beach. There is about a 7 foot section where you will have to walk on sand before you get to the actually beach. This is good for disability people who...More

I've been the wedding officiant since 2002, and have performed over two dozen wedding at Don Davis Park, some on the beach, but most in the small building there. The view is great for photographs and beach access is easy. It's close to beach rental...More

We went for a walk to watch the sunset over the ocean and walked by this building. There were several people playing musical instruments together and we stopped to listen. Interesting place with a beautiful ocean view

We’ve been to a couple of memorials on this road trip and they have been very suspect. This memorial is nicely done. You have a great tribute, beach access, a lovely ocean, clean and sterile environment.

Wonderful little park with an amazing view of the ocean, beach and lighthouse. Parking lot is small but there is also street parking. They also have a nice beach access.

It's a good walk to get to the beach. But so worth it. The cleanest beach. You can walk for miles. There are seats going down so if you get tired, you can sit. Some people take chairs. We just sit on rocks or logs.

We were able to watch the whales from this point and on our last day we scored the one bench that sits out towards the ledge! Great views!!

This is a lovely spot on the beach. Nice for sitting, nice for walking, nice for reflecting, nice for honoring veterans. I go to the Oregon coast frequently, so I'm accustomed to great views. For someone who seldom gets here or is on a first...More
