Park History

Formerly named City Park, the park was dedicated and opened in 1926, and was touted as the largest, most up-to-date and complete (park) in all the surrounding country. Money for the park came from a 1924 bond issue and the property was purchased from the Faucett family. The park was renamed in 2000 to honor Auburn Veterans groups who help to build the Veterans Memorial in the park.
