The Elk Grove Regional Veterans Memorial is located within Elk Grove Park (9950 Elk Grove Florin Road) to the north of the White Diamond ball field. Phase 1 of the project was completed in 2019 which included construction of a decomposed granite trail, flag pole, and a large bronze colored concrete star. The second phase of the project is scheduled to be complete this year and includes concrete paving, benches for seating and concrete pavers available for purchase to honor both living and deceased members of the military.
