Jacksonville sits on the New River. This city thrives on fitness, racing and testing ourselves. We also know how to kick back and relax or sink a hook. Here, the base and the city unite as one.
You can see this unity by visiting Lejeune Memorial Gardens, where stunning military monuments pay tribute to our nation's fallen heroes.
Lejeune Memorial Gardens includes the Beirut Memorial, the Onslow Vietnam Veterans Memorial (the second largest Vietnam memorial in the USA), the 9/11 Memorial Beam, the national Montford Point Marine Memorial, the Corpsman Memorial and the Eagle, Globe and Anchor.
Located in the heart of Jacksonville, NC at 109 Montford Point Landing Road, Lejeune Memorial Gardens offers a free parking area, paved paths and 24/7 access. The Gardens and Freedom Fountain are beautifully lit and open to the public at night. The Freedom Fountain is located just a few blocks away from Lejeune Memorial Gardens (you'll need to cross the highway if you park there) beside City Hall at 895 New Bridge Street, Jacksonville NC.
