Veteran's Plaza

Historic Sites, Monuments, Landmarks, and Public Art ()


One of many monuments to those we served in the military, Veteran's Plaza is a serene homage to Rock County residents who fought overseas.

The monument is a quiet place of contemplation.


Veterans Plaza is an area dedicated to all the veterans of Janesville. The plaza contains a Vietnam remembrance monument, stones with war stories of bravery and heroism by Janesville soldiers, an eternal flame war memorial, Gold Star Mothers Monument, a Purple Heart Memorial, and a brick walkway with names of Janesville soldiers engraved on them. Veterans Plaza is located at the north end of Traxler Park on Traxler Park Road.
