New Veterans Memorial Building opens in Bowling Green

After years of construction and COVID-related delays, the long-awaited grand opening of the new Veterans Memorial Building was commemorated with a ribbon-cutting this past August at Bowling Green City Park. The event served as both a celebration of the new facility and a tribute to the community’s veterans whose memory the Building honors.

Featuring three main meeting areas, a large reception hall that can hold up to 250 people, several kitchenettes and big screens for presentations, the building cost $4 million to build. Ground was first broken on the new building in the spring of 2019, with an eye on officially opening in May of the following year.

The new Veterans Memorial Building officially opened in 2020, but health concerns caused a delay in the formal dedication of the new facility. The Building took the place of three aging structures at the park— a Scout Building, a Depot Building and different Veterans Building.

In addition to the number of spaces available for rental, the new building features a space in the entryway for a display dedicated to the American Legion, featuring historical documents and military artifacts, as well as other exhibits.

For more information on the building or to inquire about rental, visit BowlingGreenPolice.org or call 419-354-6223.
