BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – A ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, March 5 will mark the completion of improvements to Brevard County Veterans Park, which is part of the Brevard Veterans Memorial Center.
Since 1978, the Brevard Veterans Memorial Center and Council have taken on many missions to support over 70,000 Brevard Veterans and their families as well as to help all citizens and visitors learn firsthand about what U.S. veterans have contributed to making our country great.
With an amazing array of military artifacts ranging from the Revolutionary War to our current conflicts in the Middle East, we strive to educate the public on our military’s efforts both past and present in the facility’s free museum, library, plaza, and park.
This public event will begin at 10:30 a.m. and will include a showcase of the newly added park improvements, with the ribbon-cutting at 11:15 a.m.
Improvements include the installation of about 30,000 square feet of sidewalk and 547 linear feet of boardwalk, additional parking and new landscaping.
The Brevard County Veterans Park is located at 400 S. Sykes Creek Pkwy. in Merritt Island, and future plans call for building a $2.5 million amphitheater and special events center.
