A Debt We Can Never Truly Repay…
In today’s fast-paced world, it’s far too easy to take the gift of freedom for granted. Year after year, while we go about our daily lives, United States service men and women serve at home and abroad to preserve and protect our precious freedom.
Freedom Park will be the hallowed ground created in Siouxland to ensure their sacrifices for our freedom are never forgotten. Thank you for being part of our community’s history and for showing your appreciation to America’s service men and women with your generous gift to Siouxland Freedom Park today.
Your gift will forever be the “thank you and welcome home” every veteran deserves to hear.

Dedicated to the men and women who have served and sacrificed in the name of freedom… and all who cherish their precious gift.
Generation after generation, Americans have stepped forward to fight for freedom and defend our liberties. As a community, we’ve come together to create Siouxland Freedom Park to honor the values of those who have served so valiantly in the past, all who serve today and the young men and women who will courageously follow in their footsteps in the future.
In the heart of Siouxland along the banks of the Missouri River, are the 55 acres of land chosen to become Freedom Park. Located not far from where nearly 12,000 visitors experienced The Wall That Heals in 2007, Freedom Park will be just across the water from the well-known Floyd Monument, in full view on the river’s bluff.
Replica of the Vietnam Veterans MemorialDesigned and built to closely replicate the experience of The Wall in Washington, D.C. this memorial will bring the healing experience of one of our country’s most unique memorials to the Midwest, making it accessible for visitors from around the country who might not otherwise experience its powerful legacy.
John Douangdara Memorial War Dog ParkIncorporated into a five-acre dog park, this memorial will pay tribute to the devoted four-legged companions whose dedication to their masters was unparalleled in combat.
Laser Light Amphitheater

Family-friendly Leisure Space
