People mill around the future home of the Across the Pond Veterans Park and Memorial following the official groundbreaking ceremony in May 2018 in Iron River.


While events across the Bayfield Peninsula have been canceled due to COVID-19 health and safety concerns, volunteers continue to plan to throw grand opening festivities, a music performance, and car show and swap meet this summer to raise money for the Across the Pond Veterans Park in Iron River.

Ray Kangas of Iron River brought forward the idea to create the Across the Pond Veterans Park, and ground was broken in May 2018 on land atop a hill along Highway 2 between the Iron River Flowage and Redwine Road.
