Designed in 1886 as part of the original Coronado City Plan, this park once boasted a star shaped flower garden with a fountain in the center. The five streets, which still exist, radiated from the points of the star. Upkeep of the landscaping proved difficult, and eventually both flowers and foundation were removed. The two military cannons were a gift from General Joseph Pendleton, USMC. The memorial rock, taken from the Ocean Bouldevard seawall commemorates Coronado's veterans and the park today serves as the site for the annual Memorial Day program.
