Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza
Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza pays tribute to lost veterans of several wars including the World Wars, Korean Conflict, Vietnam and the more recent Desert Storm. Encompassing two square blocks, adjacent to the State Capitol Museum , this park features a number of memorial monuments including the anchor of USS Arizona that sunk at Pearl Harbor. Frequently hosting local festivals such as the Fabulous Phoenix 4th, this entry-free park is also a hot-spot for political gatherings.
This is an awesome place. I live in "The Valley of the Sun", and even though I'd heard about it, I happened upon it accidentally. Not only is it a beautiful park, but there are lots of opportunities for educational moments. There are a number of structures, including the outstanding 911 memorial. As a teacher, and parent, I can't wait to share this place with my family and students! It's definitely worth the trip downtown!
