Total different memorial from all the rest in town. Lighted from the bottom so it looks great at night. Shiny so it looks great in the day. Really tugs at your imagination.

Excellent parking and it is free. There is a security guard on duty as well. Flat area, easy for elderly or handicapped access. Not crowded at all the day we went.
