Here’s the top patriotic spots in Sugar Land and their significance

Independence Day commemorates the Declaration of Independence, which was ratified on July 4th, 1776 by the Second Continental Congress. Who said we can only celebrate our freedom as a nation for one day? Here are the top patriotic spots in Sugar Land that you can visit and their significance. And they’re all located in our very own Sugar Land Memorial Park!

*We’d love for you to visit these sites in person, but do be advised that parking lots in Memorial Park will be closed off during the Red, White and Boom Festival starting on Monday July 3rd 10 p.m., the whole day Tuesday July 4th, and will reopen on July 5th.

Gold Star Families Memorial Monument

This monument is dedicated to our Gold Star Families and the legacy of their Loved Ones who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Remembrance Tower

The ‘Remembrance Tower’ seeks to accommodate two distinct, but perhaps overlapping, tropes of honor – the Celebratory and the Contemplative.

Through the symbolic entryway and peninsula bridge of the ‘Remembrance Tower’, visitors are able to walk within the obelisk and experience rays of sunlight reflecting through a vertical opening. The underside of the monument lists the names of Sugar Land soldiers who have died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Veterans Memorial Eagle Plaza

Just right across the ‘Remembrance Tower’ sits this beautiful bronze statue that symbolizes strength and distinction of our United States Armed Forces and services members.
