Reserve a Place of Honor at Veterans Memorial Park
Each November 11, the nation takes time to recognize all who have served in the United States military with the observance of Veterans Day.
For locals seeking a special way to honor those who have served, Commerce City’s Veterans Memorial Park, located at 6015 Forest Dr., offers custom-etched pavers for purchase to permanently recognize military heroes. New pavers are placed annually before the city’s Memorial Day parade, with those veterans being recognized during a special wreath-laying ceremony at the park.
Bricks are available for purchase starting at $100. Service logos can be included for an additional $50 on larger pavers. Proof of military service or active duty papers of the veteran being recognized should be provided. All pavers are dark gray in color and feature white inscriptions. The deadline for purchasing pavers in advance of the 2018 Memorial Day parade is Feb. 15, 2018.
Orders can be placed at the Eagle Pointe Recreation Center (6060 E. Parkway Dr.). Sample bricks are available to view at the recreation center or at Veterans Memorial Park.
