Poppy Peace Garden

September 2nd @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Each September the Memorial marks the official end of World War II with the Poppy Peace Garden.

To pay remembrance, 4,426 red poppies are placed alongside the Le Monument Aux Morts sculpture as a visual tribute to the men and women who gave their all to preserve the freedoms we enjoy today. The garden also commemorates the 9/11 anniversary and the first responders who sacrificed their lives for the safety of others.

The display can be viewed during daily operating hours, 10AM – 5PM. Regular admission fees apply.

Poppies may be purchased in honor or memory of veterans, active service members, first responders, or frontline workers.


Thank you to our sponsors.
