I wanted to come and see this. An Uncle of mine came to build Liberty ships here during WWII. And my father was in the Merchant Marines at the time. So I heard all about the Liberty Ships but had never actaully been to this Memorial.
It is located next to a boat ramp near the rest rooms. There is a tall wooden tower with a nice view of the area. and there are many informative postings of Historical information about the WWII Shipyard. And the ships they built. And the stages of building a Liberty Boat.
The Memorial is free, but the parking is not. there is a $5 fee for parking which i think is related to the boat ramp. With this in mind I parked over at the parking area for Marine Park and just walked here from there. it is not a very long walk and it was a nice sunny day. Allowing me to see more of the area as i walked. You can sit at picnic tables on the way. Or walk down to a beach area. So walking is a good option if you have the time to do so.
It is great that they have a memorial here for people to learn more about those times. What people did for the war effort to supply the nation with ships. And the jobs it provided for the men and woman who came to work in the shipyards.
And who could forget the iconic image of Rosie The Riveter. If you don't know about her... you can read all about her here. So this place is well worth a visit to learn more about the old WWII shipyard that once was.
