St. Patrick's Park still sees regular visitors at 9/11 Memorial


The Saint Patrick's Park has had a 9/11 Memorial since 2003. Every year they host a ceremony recognizing the events of September 11 and the lives lost. But the director of the Saint Joseph County Parks says this is a site to be enjoyed year-round.

"It's a beautiful place to just pause and reflect and have a seat on the bench. Even just to enjoy the birds and nature and trees that are out here, it's a nice quiet place for reflection," says Evie Kirkwood.

She says she is impressed with how community members still take time to remember the 9/11 attacks, even 12 years later.
