AAA Editor Notes
NC Veterans Park, 300 Bragg Blvd., honors North Carolina veterans from all branches of the military with flags and symbolic monuments. Walking paths, water features and sculptures are located throughout the park. The Oath of Service Wall displays bronze castings of North Carolina veterans' hands, positioned at shoulder height as though they are taking the oath of service.
Military history videos are shown in the visitor center, where a chandelier made of 33,500 dog tags hangs from the ceiling and a Service Ribbon Wall made of fused glass displays every service medal awarded since the Civil War.
Note: The visitor center is closed due to damage from Hurricane Matthew; phone to confirm schedule.
Picnicking is permitted. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
