The Memorial Gardens at Veterans Park
The Memorial Gardens at Veterans Park on Elmerton Avenue (across from the Pennsylvania State Police Headquarters) is now home to the Susquehanna Township Alumni memorials to World War II and Korean War veterans. Also, the Susquehanna Township Lions Club World War II monument has been moved into the Memorial Gardens. Plans are underway for the Vietnam War memorial.
The World War II Memorial was dedicated on Memorial Day, Monday May 28, 2007 at Veterans Park on Elmerton Avenue. The memorial reflects over 800 names of men and women who served their country in this campaign. A special “Thank You” for helping us obtain grant funding goes to former Rep.
