Many may not even know this park exists, but it is a great addition to the City of Sparks.  Memorial Park which is located at the corner of Pyramid Highway and C Street is a solemn place where many ceremonies to honor veterans and firefighters take place.  The City announced last week that it will be doing a $234,511 face lift at the site with a scheduled completion of Memorial Weekend. 

Every time I pass by the park I think of the 911 events and of all the firefighters and soldiers who have given their lives to defend our freedoms.  I applaud the City of Sparks for having this great memorial and keeping it in good repair.
