The Veterans Memorial Park Groundbreaking Ceremony was held August 11 in Watford City.

The purpose of the park is to honor our Veterans, past, present and future. The Watford City Veterans Park mission is to plan, build, equip and maintain a park to honor veterans who have honorably served their country. This includes any period of service beginning with the American Revolution. The park will promote patriotism and recognize veterans of all military forces.

Veterans Memorial Park continues to raise funds to support the park. Fundraising will help to provide and enhance the current Veterans Park and to provide a quiet place for individuals and families to honor their loved ones who so proudly served. On September 11, 2015, the American Legion – Carl E Rogen Post #29 made a $100,000 donation to the Watford City Park Board. Donations continue to support the park's progress.

"We have had great interest in supporting the park, from veterans, community members and others. It's a beautiful space and we are ready to officially kick off the construction," says Jerry Samuelson, retired Navy, project coordinator and director of McKenzie County Veterans Services.
