Union Beach Memorial Park

Union Beach has a small memorial park on Front Street at Florence Avenue along the shore of the Raritan Bay. Under a set of flags can be found a dough boy statue commemorating the First World War. A semi-circle of stone monuments stand tribute to those who served in the Second World War and those who died in more recent wars.
