Soldiers' Memorial Park (9/11 Memorial)
The Soldiers' Memorial Park was constructed to remember the firefighters and police officers that were killed during the initial response, and the fallen warriors who made the ultimate sacrifice post 9/11. The park contains a "Freedom Wall" with the names of fallen soldiers from New Mexico - or ties to our state - as a reminder that our freedom is not free. The park also includes an eight-foot marble replica of the twin towers, a steel beam from the World Trade Center, a steel eagle sculpture with an eight-foot wingspan, a first responder's shovel used at the Pentagon and a 10,000 pound piece of limestone recovered from the rubble of the Pentagon with a plaque dedicated to the many lives that were taken from us on 9/11/01.
