Veterans Memorial Park at the rear portion of San Marco Plaza in Lakewood Ranch.

Work on a veterans memorial park planned for a grassy patch at San Marco Plaza is finally under way.

Organizers on June 16 broke ground on the project, which will include monuments honoring the five branches of the military, concrete standards mounted with plaques honoring past, present and future veterans and a liquid fireworks display, among other features.

"What better way to honor all veterans whether past, present or future," VFW Post 12055 Commander George Johnston said at the groundbreaking ceremony.
