The park features a 32-foot by 60-foot ​outdoor ice rink in the winter (starting around the end of November each year).

11/30/18 Update: For the second year, the City of Kenosha has set up a 32-foot by 60-foot ice rink at Veterans Memorial Park outside City Hall, 625 52nd St. The rink is open for skating free of charge from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily – weather permitting. New this year: people may check out free ice skates, sponsored by the Mayor’s Youth Commission. People may check out ice skates at the Skate Hut outside the ice rink during posted rental hours: 4 to 9 p.m. Mondays through Fridays; 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays, and noon to 7:30 p.m. Sundays. Child and adult sizes are available for check-out by dropping off a photo ID, such as a valid driver’s license or a valid school-issued ID. No hockey pucks or sticks are allowed on the ice rink. Food and beverages also are not allowed on the ice rink.


Dedicated in 2005, the Lone Soldier Memorial features a seven-foot tall lone soldier created in cast bonze as its centerpiece. The work serves to commemorate all of the wars fought by the United States since 1776 as well as the total casualties of each war. The monument complements the Veterans Memorial Fountain. The fountain features mementos from historic battlegrounds, including an eight-ton boulder from Okinawa and sand from Omaha and Utah beaches in Normandy, and a stainless steel globe with continents made of cast bronze at its center.
