Hamilton Unveils Wounded Warrior
Reserved Parking Spaces at Veterans Park

 

Inside Hamilton’s largest public park – Veterans Park – many monuments honor the sacrifices of those who served our country in the Armed Forces. 

But for veterans whose sacrifices included injuries that will remain with them permanently, Mayor Kelly Yaede wanted to make it a little easier for them to visit the park that honors their service. 

This week, Mayor Yaede, along with Marty Flynn, Hamilton’s Director of Veterans Services, was joined by members of the Trenton Detachment of the Marine Corps League to unveil new ‘Wounded Warrior’ reserved parking spaces in Veterans Park.  

In total, ten ‘Wounded Warrior’ reserved parking spaces were installed throughout the park’s main entrances to help accommodate veterans with special needs.  These parking spaces are in addition to the existing reserved parking spaces for individuals with disabilities. 

“We all owe an eternal debt of gratitude to our veterans, especially those whose sacrifices include permanent injuries that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.  If this effort makes it just a little bit easier for our injured veterans to visit the monuments that honor their service, then I think it helps to show just how much Hamilton Township appreciates their sacrifices and the sacrifices of all of our veterans,” explained Mayor Yaede. 

In addition to the parking spaces in Veterans Park, Hamilton Township plans on installing more ‘Wounded Warrior’ reserved parking spaces at other Township buildings and facilities during the coming months.
