A citywide Dedication Ceremony for the
Fort Worth Police & Firefighters Memorial,
in Trinity Park, willl be held
Friday, June 5 at 9:30 a.m.



The memorial is located on the north end of Trinity Park along West 7th Street. It occupies approximately five acres of park.

At the June 5 Dedication Ceremony, 95 fallen heroes will be remembered through the reading of their names and the dates of their decease. Reverent choral music by Schola Cantorum of Texas, bagpipes, and the presentation of colors are also planned for the event, which is expected to be heavily attended by city leaders, peace officers, firefighters and the general public.

Massive bronze sculptures of a firefighter, police officer and riderless horse, will be unveiled at the Dedication. Adjacent to the sculptures will be two high walls of names that will list randomly all police officers, firefighters and marshals who have died in the line of duty. Designed by Fort Worth architects Gideon Toal, the Memorial will also feature black granite kiosks that will take visitors through several eras of Fort Worth history and tell the stories of some of our fallen heroes. A decomposed granite path winding through the trees will guide visitors to the sculptures and walls of names.

Parking

Patrons are asked to allow additional time for parking as parking will be at Farrington Field, located at the southeast corner of University and West Lancaster. Shuttle service will transport guests from the remote lot to the memorial site prior to the ceremony. Shuttles will not run during the ceremony.

Patrons should arrive at the Farrington Field lot no later than 8:45 am, allowing sufficient time to ride the shuttle and make their way to their seats so that the ceremony can begin promptly at 9:30 am.
