Veterans Memorial Park

Dedicated on Memorial Day 2001, Fairfield's Veterans Memorial Park commemorates the men and women who fought for freedom. The park features a granite monument, "Tears for the Fallen", over which water falls signifying tears shed for the fallen men and women of war and a life-size bronze sculpture, "Poppies", depicting a war veteran. A 105 mm Howitzer cannon also serves a focal point of this park. The 4,980-pound cannon was designed to provide the tactical commander with light filed artillery capable of supporting infantry units in combat. Veterans Memorial Park also features a path of remembrance made from brick paver stones purchased by community members and engraved with the names of loved ones who have served in all branches of the armed forces.
