Project Description

A ceremonial courtyard known as the Blairsville Area Veterans Memorial is located in this 3-acre park.   Local Veterans have events in this space, which displays the engraved names of fallen comrades on three granite tablets. The contemplative memorial space provides a place to rest while reflecting on the sacrifices of our military soldiers and is complimented with site lighting and plantings. Three flagpoles display the American, Pennsylvania and the MIA/POW flags. At the other end of the park and near the river an amphitheater space was created for use during community events. Sitting walls and a walking path are also included in the park’s amenities.
