New and Nice in Redondo

This is the recently dedicated Veteran's Memorial. The five triangles rising toward the sky represent the five branches of our military.

The memorial exists due solely to the efforts of determined vets, families and friends who raised $265,000 over a six year period.

Veteran Park is located at Torrance and Catalina. This 6.3 acre park was created back in 1930, presumably named in recognition of World War I veterans. It's a lovely park with a playground for the kids, concrete tables and benches and a terrific, panoramic view of the Pacific. Squirrels run around, tame as can be. The gulls honk at one another. It's really idyllic.
