Blue Ash Veterans Memorial
Blue Ash City Council received a Towne Square project update and design presentation at the October 14, 2021 City Council meeting. Click here for more information on the status of the Towne Square Project.

The Blue Ash Bicentennial Veterans Memorial Park, formally dedicated on May 25, 1991, and financed by the City of Blue Ash, is located in downtown Blue Ash adjacent to Towne Square at the southwest corner of Hunt and Cooper Roads. 

The memorial is a one-of-a-kind national-caliber memorial with 11 life-size sculptures representative of each of the following: American Revolution, War of 1812, Mexican War, Civil War, Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, and the War on Terror. The sculptures have been installed in a circle to portray that the sacrifice and importance of all American veterans is equal. Behind each sculpture is a 20-foot bronze-colored flagpole flying the flag from that era. Another major portion of the memorial, in the center of the 100-foot diameter circle of sculptures, is a 40-foot high bronze flagpole mounted upon a ten-foot-wide by six-foot-high black granite nonagon base that depicts unique etchings of various veteran scenes, famous quotes, and other historical and military information.  

The illustrations on the granite nonagon, as well as the design of nine of the ten sculptures, at the Blue Ash Veterans Memorial were created by Cincinnati area artist Gary Carson. For more information on Gary, visit his website at

NOTE: the inscribed paver program is temporarily suspended until the Towne Square Project is completed.  Learn more about the Towne Square project here

The memorial ground surface is made up of brick pavers which are available for inscription to honor individual American veterans. Brick pavers may be purchased by the public to honor any American who has served or is currently serving in the United States Armed Services. Depending on the volume of orders, inscribed bricks will be installed each Veteran's Day and/or Memorial Day. Generally, the deadline for brick orders is August 15th. Bricks cost $40 each, which may be tax-deductible. All proceeds will go towards the Veterans Memorial.
