The Veterans Memorial Garden and the adjacent Women's Memorial were designed by William Gaddes of Lake Hauto and built by the Coaldale World War II Veterans Committee. The Veteran's Garden features polished granite columns inscribed with the names of those who served. The Women's Memorial features a wishing well and an 8-by-12-foot mural, painted by borough artist Sue Frendak, depicting the Vietnam Women's Memorial in Washington, D.C.
