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.

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.

A very pleasant park with tributes to veterans and a long ramp to the huge beach. It's very close to several inns in the Nye Beach area.

This park has a moving monument of the 24 Veterans that have lost their life in battle. We loved walking the path with the large stone memorials and seeing the ocean from that vantage point.
