Hyattsville Military Service Memorial

The CDC held 3 community meetings throughout the year, speaking with local veterans, active service members and their loved ones to explore designs for the upcoming Hyattsville Veterans Memorial. This project will provide the Hyattsville community, trail users and visitors with a contemplative space enhanced by environmentally-inspired sculptural forms that honor and give tribute to the military service of veterans in and around the City.

Located along the Northwest Branch of the Anacostia Stream Valley off Baltimore Avenue and 41st Street, the Memorial, designed by artist Becky Borlan, will will reuse an existing blighted retaining wall of a long-abandoned flood plain pumping station, into an artistically devised, environmentally-sensitive sculpture.
