All Church Picnic

War Veterans’ Memorial Park; 9600 Bay Pines Boulevard, St. Petersburg, FL (Shelter # 2)

Bring a dish and join us for an old fashioned church picnic at War Veterans’s Memorial Park, Shelter # 2. The church will provide the meat, drinks and paper goods. Honoring military veterans is the focal point at this park with a landscaped Memorial Center featuring five plaques with official armed forces flags that commemorates each of the military branches of the United States. The Memorial Center is home to a Battlefield Cross Monument honoring Pinellas County’s fallen military service members who died during the Gulf War Era. Eighteen names appear on two plaques beneath the Battlefield Cross. Also featured at the Memorial Center is an equatorial sundial. It was engineered exactly for the latitude and longitude of this site. The dial is made of granite and the gnomon. The Army tank at the park is a 4-man tank of the Korean War era (also known as the “Walker Bulldog” for Gen. Walter Walker) from Letterkenny Army Depot in Chambersburg, PA, manufactured in 1953 by Cadillac/GMC. US Rep. Wm. C. Cramer acquired this surplus 45,000-pound tank in 1970 for display at the park.
