Honoring All Veterans in Cedar Park, Texas


The Cedar Park Veterans Memorial was unveiled in November 2011 and honors past, present and future veterans. The bronze soldier towering over the base is the likeness of U. S. Army Specialist First Class Matthew Morris of Cedar Park, who was killed on April 6, 2008 and was awarded the rank of Sergeant (as well as the Bronze Star and a Purple Heart) after his death.

Social Media Description

I just love that we live in a city that has a park honoring veterans! It's just one small way to recognize all of the men and women who serve our country each and every day. Veterans Memorial Park is also the home of a dog park, aquatic park and sports park with plenty of picnic areas.

A garden of bronze leaves surrounds a "Pathway of Heroes". Bricks engraved with the names and service dates of soldiers and life-size sculptures along the pathway lead up to Memorial Hill. Atop the hill is a larger than life monument with the likeness of a local soldier who was killed in 2008.

Six laser enscribed granite panels on the base of the monument honor the branches of the U. S. Military. Laser art on the obelisk even includes some Texas references. Lined up on one side of the monument are six concrete scrolls, each displaying a bronze seal of one of the branches of the military.

What park closest to your home city honors veterans?
