Veterans Memorial Park in McKinney

Veterans Memorial Park in McKinney is located on a half-acre site in Van Tuyl Plaza at Craig Ranch. It features a Wall of Honor with the inscribed names of Collin County servicemen and women who sacrificed their lives in defense of our freedom, while it honors all veterans. A lighted American flag flies 24 hours a day over the wall. A fountain at the base of the flagpole symbolically waters Shumard Red Oak trees (water restrictions
allowing) representing each branch of the Armed Services. A ribbon-like walkway extends from one end to the other.

The park broke ground Wednesday, February 16, 2011 in an on-site ceremony. It was completed for an opening ceremony on Veterans Day 2011.
