It's easy to miss if you don't know where it is. It's next to the Ocean Springs Civic Center on Hwy 90. Not very big and it should have more people visit.

Relatively small but the town is not huge. A very, very nice memorial. My husband is a Vietnam Vet and he liked it, appreciated it.

This is a very impressive memorial. The personal pictures make the names so real, especially the pictures that are so obviously from their childhoods. The atmosphere is respectful and calm. The other monuments at the site are also very worth the visit.

This is a very nice park with a walking track and an exercise area. There are interesting memorial exhibits including a torpedo and the tributes to the fallen. It is very safe.

I honestly don't know the answer to that question. That said, I believe it is part of the city parks system, I would suggest contacting the Ocean Springs Parks Department. Hope that helps.
