Veterans Memorial Park
Veterans Memorial Park honors Rector's past, present and future members of the armed services. It is a collaborative endeavor of the Veterans Memorial Park Association and the City of Rector Downtown Central, Inc. Centerpiece for the park is a life size American soldier cast in bronze and weighing approximately 600 pounds. Cast as a replica of a World War II soldier, the bronze represents the five uniformed services of the U.S. armed forces-- Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. The park also features flags of each of the services, as well as the state and city flag, a heritage walkway, and a founders' wall.
