Las Vegas Veterans' Memorial

The Huntridge Circle Park has had a checkered past. The City of Las Vegas generated controversy when it decided to fence the park to prevent homeless people sleeping there overnight. The park, the council hopes, will soon become the site of the Las Vegas Veterans' Memorial.
