The Schenectady County Legislature recently dedicated the newly finished Schenectady County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Park at SUNY Schenectady. The park is located between the back parking lot and State Street, and includes a memorial plaque, a concrete viewing area with granite benches, lighting and a flag pole. A new crosswalk was added, from the parking lot to the walkway, for easy pedestrian access to the park. 

The memorial park is the first County park to honor Schenectady County residents who served in the military during the Vietnam War. According to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau estimate, over 8,500 veterans call Schenectady County home, 2,700 of whom are Vietnam Veterans.
