Nice tribute to those who have lost their lives as fishermen in the area. Tasteful and touching. Worth a short visit to pay your respects and remember that so many are affected by someones death.

A fitting tribute to those in the fishing industry who have lost their lives. With recent deaths it truly is an active memorial.

this is a sheltered memorial near Yaquina Bay To ask me to rate a memorial is like asking to rate whether the graves in a cemetery were properly aligned

a very simple and sincere memorial to local fishermen, I was moved and thought deeply (for me) about the reality of the impact on the small coastal city

I stumbled upon this memorial while walking through the park. It was touching and caused me to reflect on the danger faced by those who are in the fishing industry. It was humbling to read the names and see the photos of the fishermen.
