This text is part of Parks’ Historical Signs Project and can be found posted within the park.

Veteran’s Circle and the Memorial Circle that circumscribes it take their names from the plaques inside the park, which honor 33 American soldiers who died in World War II. One plaque is located on the base of the flagpole; others grace the bases of the trees, each with an American flag. Most of the trees are London plane trees (Platanus x acerifolia), dedicated “to those who made the supreme sacrifice in WWII” by the Belle Harbor Garden Club.
