Veterans Serenity Park Coming in 2019!
Area veteran organizations, community members, and the Oswegoland Park District have collaborated to form the Veterans Serenity Park Committee. This unique community partnership is excited to announce plans to build Veterans Serenity Park along the Fox River in Oswego. The park will be located on Adams Street at the North edge of Hudson Crossing Park, across from the former Oswego Greenhouse.
Veterans Serenity Park will be a continuation of recognizing area military personnel and will prominently feature the walkway from the Vietnam Wall that traveled to Oswego last summer. It will spotlight the five branches of the armed services and is designed as a park of reflection and honor.
Plans call for the park to be finalized by Memorial Day 2019 and officially opened following the parade on May 27th.
The site plans call for benches, bricks, sculptures and a water feature that will encompass the eternal flame. It is the work of multiple community members and will complement the Park District’s vision of open space along the Fox River. Chad Feldotto, Director of Planning, has been the lead designer on the project with Phil Edwards of Twin Oaks Landscaping and Mike Schoppe of Schoppe Design.
The Veterans Serenity Park Committee has planned an open house/fundraiser for Saturday, October 20th at the Kickers Club in Oswego to help raise funds and awareness for this unique park.
