Liberty Gardens
Newport News

The Newport News Public Works Department, in cooperation with the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, the Woodmen of the World Association, and Anderson's Home and Garden Showplace, dedicated a Liberty Garden on September 12, 2002 to pay tribute to the victims and heroes of September 11th.

The dedication ceremony, "In Honor and Remembrance," was held at Jama Square Park, located in the City's southeast section, at Jefferson Avenue and 25th Street in Newport News.


The ceremony was one of 600 being held across the nation by Woodmen Lodges to present flagpoles, U.S. flags, and commemorative plaques to their communities. The garden serves as a special place of natural beauty that allows our citizens to reflect upon the principles of freedom and liberty on which our country is built. The Hiram Grand Lodge, Adopt-a-Spot group in partnership with City of Newport News staff have helped maintain the garden.
