The Park is also the place for concerts and other entertainment at Jeremy Shoemaker Amphitheater. In order to recognize the fact that so many of Ceredo's Sons and Daughters served their county in time of national peril the park contains the Ceredo War Veterans Memorial Monuments. These monuments consist of five shiny blocks of granite bearing the name of nearly 500 veterans who have called Ceredo home.
