Location: Laishley Park, Punta Gorda, Florida
Features: Marker plaques and memorial bricks dedicated to local veterans arrayed about a beautiful garden, fountain and gazebo
History: History of memorial unknown. Punta Gorda was leveled by Hurricane Charley in 2004; the garden and memorials would have been dedicated since that time. There is also a monument dedicated to the Hurricane and the moment it's winds stopped the downtown clock.
Traveler's Notes: Laishley Park sits just outside our friend's home along Charlotte Harbor in Punta Gorda. I came across the Memorial while taking a stroll along the waterfront in August 2010.
