Memorial Park

Memorial Park is a 51-acre park has some very awesome features including a one-third mile walk from the entrance to the rear of the 2000-seat Millennium Amphitheater. This walk is also referred to as Avenue of Heroes, which is a unique tribute to the veterans of various wars and conflicts. More than 20 monuments are stationed along this walk ranging from the Revolutionary War through the General’s Overlook. It features a 500-year “walk” through time beginning when Arcadia was first settled in 1854. Buried in the walk are many facts on the origin and history of Arcadia, etched in gray granite stones. One of the newest attention-getting memorials in the park is the War on Terrorism. It features twisted steel from one of the World Trade Center from the 9-11-2001 tragedy. There are two monuments to family farming. War years are represented with planters that house many beautiful floral arrangements. Kid’s Kingdom is wooden playground equipment built by local citizens.

Aquatic CenterThe Aquatic Center was completed in 2000. It has capacity for 376 patrons. It features a zero depth entry pool with swimming lanes and a huge 150-foot water slide. Additional recreational facilities include the two-lighted softball fields; one for is intended slow pitch and the other for past pitch, with the necessary backstops, fencing and bleachers as well as a press box and concession stand, a basketball court, and a volleyball court. The 50-acre site of the new Arcadia Highs School lie adjacent to this park, and the athletic field at the school together with the city provided park facilities comprise the Arcadia athletic complex. This is a fine facility for use by all people. Around the park is a 2.3-mile handicap accessible pedestrian-bicycle trailway. Dotted around the park are some military hardware pieces, a tank, two Howitzers and F-16 Jet Fighter. During the summer months the park is used for festivities, picnic and family reunions at the Bavarian style pavilion, a picnic shelter and the world’s largest broiler pits all donated by Lions Club. The park has been intensively landscaped with more than 45 varieties trees and shrubs. Citizens have an opportunity to donate funds for tree maintenance as planting new trees as memorials.
