The Ultimate Sacrifice

There is no greater price to pay than to give one’s life in the line of duty. The West Park Cleveland Police & Fire Fighters Memorial Walkway was built to honor these brave officers who lived in or died in West Park. The Memorial Walkway, set off by a scenic view, not only recognizes the tremendous sacrifice these officers made, but serves as a gathering place for family, friends and community to honor the service of the fallen officers.
