Design Challenge:
The purpose of the Springdale Veterans Memorial is to recognize and honor those who serve. It should provide a symbol of acknowledgement of the courage, sacrifice, and devotion to duty of those who were among the nation’s finest whose service embodied values and ideals prized by this nation since its inception. The memorial should stand as a symbol of our city’s appreciation for the sacrifices of those who served our nation, expressing respect and gratitude. The memorial should be reflective and contemplative in character. The leadership of Springdale’s City Council has given this veteran memorial effort overwhelming endorsement offering this parcel of land at JB Hunt Park for consideration in its establishment. The site for the memorial was chosen by the Springdale Veterans Memorial Board of Directors both for its prominence in a growing area of the city and for its proximity to highly trafficked areas of the city. The vision is to establish a prominent and artistic veterans memorial in a befitting setting that will further enhance the appearance of JB Hunt Park, its attraction and draw, its function and utility for our community on a year-round basis.
