Veterans Freedom Park

This veterans’ park is conveniently located in Central Michigan; at 200 W. Main Street, in Harrison, MI. This is across from the Clare County Courthouse, on Harrison Community School property. This Park honors our nation’s heroes and educates our students and the public on the continued sacrifices that our service men and women give for our freedom. This is our chance to give back to those that continue to sacrifice the most, and ask for the least.

There is a unique education opportunity with a welcome center that will hold military artifacts and a walking trail that surrounds the pentagon shaped park, with side areas dedicated just for the war eras.

It is our mission to make this a place like no other to ‘Remember, Honor and Reflect’ on the great sacrifice that our past and current service men and woman have made.

We can always use your support! If you would like more information or would like to donate or host a fundraising event please contact us. Thank you for your support!!

Veterans Freedom Park's Wall Of Tears
Veterans Freedom Park’s Wall Of Tears

Wall Of Tears

The “Wall of Tears” was unveiled at the Grand Opening of the Veterans Freedom Park, on Wednesday, May 25, 2016. This is the main focal point of the park, as this is located on a permanent stage that overlooks the park itself. This is a 47-foot long black and gray granite wall. The wall has 301 names hand-engraved of those killed in action from WWII to present from Clare, Gladwin, Isabella and Midland counties. The names were read at the Grand Opening ceremony, and a bell was rung in their honor. Thank you to all who joined us in honoring all veterans, and those that have given the ultimate sacrifices for the privileges that we enjoy today!

The total names engraved are as follows:

  • Clare County – 41
  • Gladwin County – 44
  • Isabella County – 94
  • Midland County – 122
