Veterans park

206 Park Street

         This area was deeded to the city on January 11, 1909, by George C Beach for public park purposes. At one time it was known as Doege Park. The present name, "Veterans Park," was chosen Sept. 7, 1928, as a living memorial to the soldiers who fought and died in World War I. A monument at the park was dedicated May 30, 1938. In 1997, the American Legion Post 54, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1866, VVA Chapter 549 and DAV Chapter 57 dedicated the Cobra AH-IS Helicopter at the apex of the park. The helicopter had flown combat missions in the Vietnam War.

        Veterans Park is located at the corner of West Seventh Street and Park Street, just south of Marshfield City Hall.
