The Crowley Veterans Memorial Committee was founded in May 2010. The board worked diligently discussing and planning the Veterans Plaza to honor those who have served and those currently serving our country. It became an official city of Crowley park project in December 2012. With the support of the Crowley City Council, private businesses, many individuals and especially the residents of Crowley, the project was completed.
The Crowley Veterans Plaza officially opened with a dedication ceremony May 23, 2015.
