The Hillsborough County Veterans Park and Museum located on US 301 at the Tampa Bypass Canal in Hillsborough County was established to honor the residents of Hillsborough County who served, and especially those who lost their lives in war. The World War II, Afghanistan, Seminole War, Spanish American War, and Civil War veterans’ memorials were recently completed in 2017 resulting in a total of 16 separate memorials located throughout the park. This current phase of memorial development is expected to bring multiple privately funded public dedication ceremonies organized many different veterans, community, and family groups that will further public awareness of the park and help to establish this park and museum as a destination in the region.

These memorials, which may include personalized memorial bricks and plaques, seating, and landscape plantings, create a moving and beautiful, yet somber, space. The memorials, surrounded by large Oaks on the shore of the Canal, invites contemplation and reflection. Hillsborough County dedicated approximately $2.5 million from Community Investment Tax and property tax revenue to renovate the overall Veterans Park, creating a beautiful setting for the series of veterans’ memorials and a new museum building, now under construction

This was truly a group effort, led by a well-organized group of local veterans who worked tirelessly to achieve their vision for these memorials. Supporting this goal, Genesis contributed Civil Engineering and Landscape Architecture services at reduced cost. Many other people and organizations supplied materials and labor for free, or at reduced cost

This united and dedicated effort created moving and fitting memorials to brave men and women whose sacrifices have long deserved to be recognized, honored, and memorialized.
