The Bend Heroes Memorial Plaza
The Bend Heroes Memorial in Brooks Park was dedicated on Veteran’s Day in 2009. The plaza and surrounding plantings are dedicated to local veterans and first responders and serve as a place where all can go to reflect.
The memorial plaza is paved with numerous inscribed bricks which are dedicated both in honor and in memory of people who have served our country and community.
A map and guide to the bricks is available below. To locate a brick, please open both links with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Use the search feature available in to find a specific brick.
The plaza includes an area paved with bricks which are dedicated both in honor and in memory of people who have served our country and community.
The cost for an engraved brick is $50. Proceeds cover the cost of the brick and engraving and the balance remains in a fund to support the plaza. Orders for engraving are placed twice a year – mid-April and late September, for placement in the plaza prior to Memorial Day and Veterans Day.. Bricks are placed in the plaza according to the area of service for the person listed on the dedication, if space is available or placed in the next open space if that area is filled.
Proceeds from the sale of dedicated bricks supports ongoing maintenance of the site and amenities added to the plaza.
