Many of these parks have statuary and other memorials related to World War One. To add a park to this page, send an email to the webmaster with the relevant information. (See disclaimer.)

These memorials, along with a vintage U.S. Army tank, are located in Milaca's Trimble Park.
This memorial honors those who have served in every U.S. conflict from World War 1 to the present day, with plaques listing the names of those who gave their lives. In front of the memorial stands a "Battlefield Cross" sculpture comprised of a servicemember's rifle, helmet, and boots.
This park contains many different memorials commemorating service in World War 1, including one for submariners and one for Medal of Honor recipients from all wars. The park is also home to many more monuments and memorials unrelated to World War 1, including Oregon's first Vietnam War Memorial.
