VALE – Vale city officials are planning a new half-acre park dedicated to veterans near M&W Markets.

Vale Mayor Tom Vialpando said the city will seek a grant from the Oregon Parks and Recreation to get the project going.

Preliminary plans place the park next to the Lewis and Clark kiosk across the street from M&W Markets.

Flag poles that fly the ensigns of each branch of the U.S. military will be installed at the park along with plaques with the names of living and dead local veterans. The park will also have picnic tables, benches, decorative boulders and a drinking fountain.
