New Veterans Memorial Coming to New Albany

Plans are underway for a new Veterans Memorial in New Albany to honor those who have served while adding richness to the existing greenspace network. In order to create a unique Veterans Memorial for New Albany, the City of New Albany worked with landscape architect MKSK and a focus group composed of New Albany residents, veterans, and veterans’ advocates.

Upon the request of Mayor Sloan Spalding and the City of New Albany, the New Albany Company will donate 2 acres of land adjacent to New Albany Village Hall and the existing New Albany Police Department for the project. Part of the donation also includes land that formerly housed the police station and a fuel station. This donation enables the City to move forward with its plans for a Veterans Memorial as well as commence the development of the City’s Rose Run Park Phase II, a significant next step in the expansion of the green space and parkland that is such an important element of the Village Center. This location also has access to ample parking and is well connected to the existing pedestrian circulation.
