Welcome to one of Key West’s LEAST seen monuments… the Korean War Memorial!
Referred to as the ‘Forgotten War’, the Korean War began when North Korea invaded South Korea. The United Nations, with the United States as the principal force, came to the aid of South Korea. China came to the aid of North Korea. The war lasted 3-years, 1-month & 2-days from June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953. I encourage you to stop by and pay tribute to those brave men & women who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our liberties & rights as Americans!
First find your way to Bayview Park near the corner of N. Roosevelt Blvd. & Pearl Street. It’s here at Bayview Park’s northernmost side exactly in front of the parking area beside the Vietnam Memorial just a few feet from the sidewalk. The parks biggest building is a gazebos, if you find this you can see it from here just a stones throw north.
