Our beautiful park of honor is located next to the Pere Marquette Depot, 100 Depot St. in Belding, MI 48809.
We are a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our park has been funded by gracious donations from our community members, local businesses and thousands of hours of labor of love by amazing volunteers.
This granite WWI monument stands in honor of all local WWI veterans. Over 320 engraved bricks lay before this monument representing the local WWI veterans. Belding itself had only one WWI vet that lost his life in that war and that was Hugo Fales. He is honored with his own granite monument.
This Freedom Wall is a replica of the original Freedom Wall that was a piece of Belding history and was decommissioned in Nov. 1947. This wall is home to more that 754 names. Those are the names of all local WWII veterans that were serving in the war.
The Korean War is represented in our veterans park with this granite monument and the engraved bricks that lay before it.
