A visit to this site in Lincoln’s historic Antelope Park will take you on a walking tour of over twenty one military monuments. A place of solemn beauty, the garden allows peaceful reflection and serves as a permanent reminder of the sacrifices veterans have made to preserve our freedom.
A beautiful and lasting memorial park dedicated to the military men and women of the United States who have served our great country. Veterans Memorial Park was dedicated on May 31, 2005. The mission of this project adopted by the Beatrice Rotary Club was and still is to build and maintain a permanent memorial park to honor all military men and women of the United States who served or are currently serving our country.

The sculpture depicts a soldier kneeling near a helmet-topped rifle that marks a grave. With a solemn expression, the soldier reaches not for the weapon, but toward the dog tag attached to it.
Located on the corner of Monroe and Halleck streets, Veterans Park is a tribute to military veterans past and present. Formerly known as Triangle Park, Veterans Park was renamed in 2013 after the installation of a Blue Star Memorial. That same year, a conceptual plan was adopted outlining future enhancements to the park.
