Welcome to the Nordonia Hills Veterans Memorial Park
For information on how you can help please click on the above tabs.
In August of 2015, through the efforts of Mr. Tom O’Brien, American Legion Nordonia Hills Post 801 petitioned the Mayor and City Council of Macedonia to allow us to erect a monument to all veterans in what was known as Colonel Peck Park at the intersection of Route 82 and South Bedford Road. The Mayor and Council enthusiastically agreed and even renamed the park Nordonia Hills Veterans Memorial Park dedicated to all veterans.
The Mayor formed a planning committee with veterans to advise on the development of the park. A committee comprised of members from AL Post 801 and from Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6768 in association with the city of Macedonia was formed.
The park will consist of the main memorial honoring all veterans on a plaza made of pavers with three flag poles. There will be a special spot for the names of Nordonia Hills’ veterans that were killed in action (KIA). (Please refer to the tab marked KIA for details on how to have someone listed.)
In addition there will be up to 12 smaller memorials with a brief history of each of the major conflicts since the Revolutionary War. The memorial from World War I will be returned to the park.
Handicapped accessible picnic tables and benches will be placed throughout the park along the walkways.
The park will be built in two phases. The first is the main memorial and plaza along with the required site preparation. We are hoping to have this phase completed in time to hold a memorial ceremony on Memorial Day, 2017. We are hoping to have the final phase completed by Memorial Day, 2018.
It is our hope that we can count on you and area businesses to help by donating money and materials to make this park one that Nordonia Hills can be proud of.
VFW Post 6768 along with AL Post 801 have been joined by both of their Auxiliaries to raise the funds. American Legion and VFW personal do small projects for veterans all of the time but, we could certainly use a helping hand from the community for one of this size.
