Veterans Memorial Park is a popular community park 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. A Veterans Memorial structure was built in 2000.

Ongoing Project to update Veterans Memorial Plaza Bricks: Unfortunately, after 20 years many of the Veterans Memorial Bricks that are part of the Veterans Memorial plaza area have become illegible. The City of Auburn looks forward to partnering again with local organizations to refurbish the Plaza. This "master list" contains all the names on the bricks (PDF), based on a file of names provided to the City of Auburn by the American Legion.

Park History

Formerly named City Park, the park was dedicated and opened in 1926, and was touted as the largest, most up-to-date and complete (park) in all the surrounding country. Money for the park came from a 1924 bond issue and the property was purchased from the Faucett family. The park was renamed in 2000 to honor Auburn Veterans groups who help to build the Veterans Memorial in the park.
