Jeffersontown Veterans Memorial Park was the first park in the state of Kentucky to be dedicated solely to Veterans. The Park offers an opportunity for the community to become more aware of the importance of the military to our country. Located on 25 beautiful acres, The Park is minutes from Jeffersontown, Kentucky's Town Square, and offers open green space to serve the recreational needs of families.
Jeffersontown Veterans Memorial Park is dedicated to the men and women who have served our country valiantly over the years in our armed forces. In 1998, the Park had the distinction of being awarded the "Best Community Park," of a class III city, in Kentucky.
Although designed to cater to family outings, area is available for larger group or possible city functions. Facilities include an Adult Softball Complex, a full-asphalt basketball court, handicapped restrooms, 6 pavilions, and 2 playground areas catering to different age groups. There is also a beautiful, natural walking path thru a forest-like setting along Chenoweth Creek. The path offers 6 concrete pads with tables and grills along the way (access is limited to foot traffic).
The Walk is an area to the right of the main entrance consisting of approximately 6000 brick pavers. The area is flanked by a Huey helicopter, an M-60A tank, naval guns and a 60ft. bronze-colored flagpole. Every year, ceremonies are held on Veterans Day and Memorial Day to dedicate new bricks. There are currently 3,000 inscribed pavers in the Walk.
These pavers are available for inscription to honor individual veterans. They may be purchased as a permanent remembrance or tribute to that special someone who served (or is currently serving) in our armed forces.
