Originally known as Hampden Park, this downtown common was renamed Veteran's Memorial Park on January 22, 1962. The Soldiers Monument, "Female Liberty" was dedicated on July 4, 1876. A Virginian sculptor, H.G. Ellicott memorialized the 55 people from Holyoke who died in the Civil War. The park contains Vietnam, Korean Conflict and World War II memorials, large trees, lawn, paths and benches. Holyoke selected Veteran’s Park as its Gateway project. Brown, Richardson + Rowe’s design includes new LED park lighting, accessible walkways, planting, benches and accessible ramps to the park across neighboring streets. Construction was completed in June 2013.
