Want to get a look at Mansfield’s planned Veterans Memorial Park?
Members of the planning committee will be giving free tours of the site from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at Julian Field Park, 1531 E. Broad St.
“Models of the potential memorial designs and a short program of what it might be like will be included with the 30-minute tours,” said Terry Moore, who is committee chairperson.
“For veterans (and others) who aren’t mobile, we will give the presentation at the top of the park in the parking lot,” Moore said.
The park will honor veterans living and dead, he said. The landscape design class from the University of Texas at Arlington is helping with the design.
Members of the Mansfield High School JROTC will also assist with the tours.
