Located in the over seven acre Veteran's Memorial Park, the facility is located close to downtown Auburn and adjacent to Auburn High School's Memorial Stadium. The park is distinctive for its Veterans Memorial structure, shady woods and underlying expanse of green lawn.

The Backyard Idea Garden adjacent to the William C. Warren Building recently received some major improvements, including a new garden arbor, additional perennial plants and flowers and new concrete features. The area is great for small weddings and gatherings.
