Memory Lane Veterans Memorial and Park in Wildwood

Memory Lane Veterans Memorial and Park in Wildwood New Jersey

The Wildwood island is one of those coastal communities that honors their veterans past and present. You can feel the patriotism almost every where you go...from local eateries, tourist attractions, amusement parks and as you drive around on the island you'll see hundreds and hundreds of American flags.

A few years ago they decided to honor some of their Vietnam and Korean veterans by putting in a beautiful Memory Lane and Park. Right outside the fenceline of the park you'll find a cement pathway (sidewalk) that's lined with little memorial plaques. Each one has the name of a veteran printed on it who died while serving in the Vietnam or Korean wars.

Memory Lane is dedicated to the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrafice to allow us to live our lives as free people. Please do not disrespect their Honor. No dogs are allowed on the pathway or near the memorial. When walking...please stay on the paved path and don't pick the flowers! They're there for everyone to enjoy. 

It's a short walk that is only one city block in length. In the middle you'll find the official memorial stones and plaques. It's Wildwood's Tribute to those who served. There's one memorial stone that states the following information:

Presented by Wildwood Civic Club. * Sorry for any mispelling on the names as some of them are hard to read. You'll find all of the "official" memorial markers and stones in the center area surrounded by a red brick path. 

Memory Lane is located a block away from the Wildwoods Convention Center. You can walk down to it or find "paid meter" parking nearby. The memorial is open year-round and is free to visit. When traveling, it's always nice to pay your respects when you come across a veteran's memorial. We must never forget their sacrafice.
