The creation of the first six memorials at the Hillsborough County Veterans Park and Museum (along with the plans for the next five memorials) was truly a community effort, spearheaded by a well organized group of local veterans to establish a meaningful memorial to veterans who served and protected our freedom. Genesis donated planning and design services, including site planning, landscape architecture, and civil engineering for the initial memorials for this worthy tribute.

The Vietnam, Korea, and Iraq memorials were all constructed based on the design and input received from veterans' groups and families. Amenities include displays of memorial bricks and plaques, armaments, custom designed artwork etched into polished granite, memorial sculptures, specialty paving, seating, fencing, and landscaping.

The park provides a ‘green’ environmental area adjacent to the Tampa Bay Bypass Canal along a mostly industrial section of US 301. Master infrastructure design and development by Hillsborough County in 2011 includes stormwater treatment and attenuation facilities to minimize pollutant loading on the canal that the more industrial uses common in the area could have negatively contributed to.

The park creates an environment in which the general public becomes educated of the importance to remember and honor those who served. It is important to continue to increase the publicity of the park so that the contributions of the few are not forgotten by the many.

We are proud to have volunteered time and resources to help bring the veterans’ visions for their memorials to reality.
