South Burlington names park for veterans memorial

Posted: Updated:

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The city of South Burlington is renaming a park in honor of a veterans memorial placed there in the fall.

The city council this week voted to change the name of Dorset Park to Veterans Memorial Park.

The memorial was dedicated last month. The Burlington Free Press reports that it includes a steel cylinder with the names of war theaters, a dog tag sculpture and a granite monument.

The new name takes effect immediately.
