Johnson County Remembrance Park – A Dream for a Time Such as This?
JCRP is now open for visitors! Stop by and REMEMBER. Our dedication was Monday, September 5, 2022 – Labor Day. Click here for pictures!
Here is our location for Remembrance Park – south of Iowa City – at the intersection of Sand Road & Napoleon Street SE – adjacent to the sites of the first Johnson County Fur Trading Posts of the 1830’s.
Editor’s note: It’s believed that the Iowa River channel has moved further westward than where it was in the 1820’s-30’s – thus the above map (above-red x) approximates the location of today’s Remembrance Park – about 1/2 mile east of the present day Iowa River channel.
In March 2022 – Iowa City Press Citizen writer Dick Hakes made a visit to JCRP for some pics for his article. Above are Marty & Sandy Boller, Marybeth & Ken Slonneger and Dick Hakes. Read more here.
Remembrance Park is listed at HMdb.org – The Historical Marker Database.
