The City of Milton Parks & Recreation Commission is currently working to raise funds to construct the Milton Area Veterans Memorial in Veterans Park, located on the corner of Hilltop Drive and High Street.

The commission also has a limited number of benches available to purchase at $2,500 each. Four benches have already been sold to Bank of Milton, First Community Bank, American Legion Post 367, and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9403 Becker-Godfrey Post.
