About the Park

The Park as it is now comprised was formed by an action taken by the City Council on 21 July 2009.  On that date the Veterans Memorial Park of Wichita Inc. was given the responsibility of Managing the Park in accordance with the Long Range Plan agreed to by the Board of VMPWI and the City.  This agreement is still in effect to this day.  Ownership remains with the City and as such, permits are required for all events.  Persons and/or organizations wishing to build monuments in the Park must contact the VMPWI Board for information and permission to break ground.

CURRENT PROJECTS

Veterans Memorial Walkway

Veterans Memorial Walkway has two missions:

Mission I: There will be four grids directly southof the Vietnam Memorial reserved for Vietnam era Veterans (1955 thru 1975). This is the only area in the park designated for Vietnam era Veterans only. The area set aside will have room for approximately 1,500 pavers. The pavers will be placed on a first come, first serve basis.
Adjacent to the Vietnam section will be a new area added to the Korean Memorial for Korean era Veterans. This is the first time since the completion of the Korean Memorial that there has been the opportunity to add pavers to this Memorial.

Mission II: The walkway between the Vietnam and Korean WarMemorials, and World War II Walkway, will be open to all Veterans from all eras! This will give family members from different generations the opportunity to have pavers placed together.
