Veterans Day is a time to honor and remember the men and women who have served our country in the armed forces. In Dublin, we appreciate our country’s heroes daily. Learn how you can honor Veterans year-round in Dublin, Ohio.
VISIT VETERANS PARK
Located in Historic Dublin along India Run you’ll find Dublin Veterans Park, a lasting tribute to the men and women who have served our country in war and peace. Take a closer look into what makes this park so special.
While the park may only take up an acre of land, you’ll come across multiple spots to take a moment and reflect on the sacrifices made by those who have served.
Recognition Walk: The Recognition Walk features 500 dedication stones to honor Veterans. Each stone is engraved with the Veteran's name, branch of service, and dates of service.
Loggia: The Loggia is a ceremonial area with the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson inscribed on its walls: "The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage nerves a thousand living men."
Sycamore Grove: The Sycamore Grove recognizes major contributors to the building of the park.
Memory Wall: The Memory Wall holds personal messages of thanks to Veterans.
Dedication Wall: The Dedication Wall pays tribute to the five branches of service.
To show the City of Dublin’s appreciation all year, Veterans can receive a Veteran Appreciation Card with exclusive access benefits to enjoy and share with their friends and family. Apply for your card here.
