Welcome to Big Springs, Nebraska!
The Veteran's Memorial Park is located at the corner of 2nd and Maple across the street from the swimming pool park. The Veteran's Memorial Park is a beautiful tribute to our area veterans. Almost $70,000 was donated to the project which includes a walkway to the circular memorial site with three granite ledger stones engraved with the names of approximately 670 local veterans. The ledger stones are centered with a 30' American Flag pole, surrounded by 25' flag poles flying the flags for the six branches of the Armed Forces. Two benches face the monuments and provide a peaceful place to rest and reflect. The area is bordered on the south with a 6' vinyl fence and the entire area is landscaped with numerous trees, bushes, grasses and flowers.
The people of the Village owe a huge debt of gratitude to all those who volunteer their time to keep the area mowed, sprayed and weeded. Our hats off to those wonderful volunteers!!
Donations are still needed to help with the maintenance and upkeep for the site. A full set of flags costs approximately $1,000 and they have to be changed at least once a year. Tax deductible donations should be made payable to: The Big Springs Veteran's Memorial and mailed or left at Village of Big Springs, 403 Pine ST - PO Box 132, Big Springs, NE 69122. Names can still be added to the stones with a minimum donation of $175.00.
