Veterans Park

Veterans Park Honor Wall Concept Drawing

History

In November 2015, the City Council appointed a task force to develop a concept plan for Veterans Park. The goal was to formally recognize veterans in our community and create another premier community gathering place.

Representatives from the City of Chaska, the Downtown Business Alliance, the VFW, the American Legion, and the community made up the task force. The task force worked with Hoisington Koegler Group (HKG) to develop a concept plan that met the City Council's goals. The City Council approved the plan in March 2017.

Veterans Park opened November 11, 2018 (Veterans Day).
