AMERICAN LEGION PARK VETERANS MEMORIAL PLAZA
The land for American Legion Park was donated to the City of Poulsbo in the name of The American Legion by Selmer Myreboe, a veteran of World War I.
In 2017, Poulsbo Post 245 proposed to the City of Poulsbo the idea for the Veterans Memorial Plaza (VMP) as part of The American Legion Centennial Celebration in 2019. The city donated the space, which was a parking lot over the public restrooms back to the Post to create the VMP in recognition to some of the millions of veterans who have proudly served our country since the end of World War I.
Construction funds were raised by the sale of the engraved pavers by Poulsbo Post 245 and many other people donating time and resources. Special thanks to the City of Poulsbo Public Works Department, Active Duty volunteers, Poulsbo Lions Club and local contractors.
It is a living memorial...on Memorial Day 2022, the Battle Cross statute was added and dedicated. The sculpture was a gracious donation by the family of SSG David P. Nowaczyk USA, who was KIA in Afghanistan in 2012.
