Project: Muckleshoot Indian Tribe’s Veterans Memorial Plaza and Park

The Veterans Memorial was developed to honor the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe’s veterans and provide a place for reflection and healing. The Memorial, designed by Nakano Associates and constructed by WA Patriot, features a winding path and dry stream that meander through the site and converge at the Veteran’s Memorial Wall, where a 25’ long by 4’ tall eagle is highlighted. The memorial plaza is slightly elevated, giving visitors a view of Mt. Rainier as the backdrop to the Eagle Memorial Wall. Flagpoles are located behind the memorial wall, and all walls are cast in place concrete, stained black by iron oxide.
