The Veteran’s Memorial Fund was established in 2005 to honor war casualties and all veteran’s. Donations are accepted for the Monroe County Veteran’s Memorial, which is located in Lakeview Park near the flag pole and gazebo. The Veteran’s Memorial also contains the Veteran’s paver project. Pavers can purchased to serve as perpetual symbols in which individuals and families can recognize and honor Veteran’s of all branches of military service.

In 2016 a new feature in the park will be a Dog Park to allow dogs to run off leash in an enclosed area.
