Fort Worth /  Fort Worth Police & Firefighters Memorial   Fort Worth /  Fort Worth Police & Firefighters Memorial

Description

Bronze sculptures of a firefighter, police officer and riderless horse.
Adjacent to the sculptures are two high walls of names that list randomly all police officers, firefighters and marshals who have died in the line of duty. The memorial also features black granite kiosks that take visitors through several eras of Fort Worth history and tell the stories of some of its fallen heroes. A decomposed granite path winding through the trees guides visitors to the sculptures and walls of names.

Inscription(s)

In the circular pavement around the statue is written:

"This memorial stands as a symbol of eternal gratitude for those who sacrified all for family, community and the enduring legacy of this great city." Mayor Mike Moncrief
