This parkland is dedicated to the memory of those soldiers from Elmhurst who lost their lives serving in World War I. A World War I-era howitzer once sat in the center of the triangle. Howitzers, which are light-to-medium weight artillery pieces, were used extensively during World War I as a means of providing support for both air and infantry units. Many Parks properties were adorned by the excess field guns after World War I, however, at the onset of World War II they were collected and melted down to be made into to weapons. The howitzer was replaced by a plaque celebrating all Elmhurst veterans.
