Brick dedication May 22 at Plant City veterans park


Bricks engraved with names of veterans will be dedicated May 22 at an annual ceremony at a local park.

The bricks will be dedicated at 5:30 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Monument Park, Wheeler and Damon streets.

Hundreds of bricks engraved with the names of veterans have been placed in a park walkway since it opened in 2010.

The centerpiece of the park is a 14-foot high bronze sculpture called Freedom Rising, which depicts an eagle with outstretched wings atop a six-sided, black granite pedestal. The monument pays tribute to veterans of all five branches of service: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Navy.

The park also includes benches and a gazebo.

The engraved bricks can be purchased for the park for $150 each.
