History

The Oswegoland Park Foundation, in conjunction with the Veterans Serenity Park Committee, secured private funding to build the park which was dedicated on November 10, 2019. The park is designed to be a lasting tribute to the men and women that have served and sacrificed for our country. It is a solitude sanctuary designed to let people from every walk of life seeking a quiet setting to enjoy the beauty of the river and a peaceful refuge. The walkway from the Vietnam Wall that visited Oswego in 2017 was preserved and is featured throughout the park.
