Memorial Park Master Plan, Fort Hood

The design for Memorial park is based on a series of straight and arched tree-lined walkways that segment the Memorial Park site into sections. In the center of the site is an amphitheater, on axis with the III Corps headquarters to the south; this amphitheater can be used for public gatherings or unit events. Three existing buildings on the site, the Old Post Chapel, the Garrison Chaplain Office and the USO, will remain. The sections of the park are divided by walkways through memorial areas, which are to be organized chronologically. There is a total of approximately 185,000sf of space to relocate existing monuments and allow for installation of new memorials in the future. The memorial areas are divided into 12’x9’ parcels that can house one monument, or can be combined together for larger monuments or groupings of monuments.
