Memorial Underway in McCowin Park


Kendall Purser

If you have visited McCowin Park recently, you may have noticed the changes being made on the Disc Golf Course around Hole #6. The hill has been filled in and three flag poles have been installed. This is part of a project to add a Memorial to the park to honor the citizens of Ammon who have given their lives in the armed forces.

On July 15, 2021 Boy Scout Troop 180 helped lay over 4,000 square feet of sod in preparation for the flag poles and the memorial area. Future plans include adding a stone memorial and plaque to the eastern side of the newly reconstructed hill.

Members of the community are in the process of planning out changes to the Disc Golf course in order to respect the space being used for the memorial site.
