Veterans Memorial Park in Dana Point

Veterans Memorial Park Dana Point 8

As a parent, I found myself only talking to my children about all the great things the military are doing for our Country on the big holidays like Memorial Day. This past Memorial Day, I decided to make sure and find ways to talk to my children about the Men and Women who are fighting for our freedom on a regular basis. It is easier for my youngest to understand things when visiting a place of significance as with Veterans Memorial Park in Dana Point.

Shortly after Memorial Day, we planned a family beach day at Strands Beach in Dana Point. We stopped at the park, before having fun together at the beach, to talk about the military and to admire the beautiful memorial set-up by the city of Dana Point.

The beautiful park and memorial is located at the south end of the Strands Beach parking lot. There is plenty of free parking in the parking lot or on the street. It can be found on Selva Road right off of PCH in Dana Point.

When your children first arrive at the park, they will be greeted by a beautiful lush garden. Inside the center of the garden is a flag pole with a beautiful memorial to honor those who have lost their lives fighting for our freedom. There are often flowers, cards and messages left at the memorial, so I would recommend bringing flowers for your children to leave in honor of the Veterans.
