Grapevine Memorial Park
1000 Texan Trail
The 9/11 Memorial Foundation is dedicated to remembering and honoring those that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Three memorial bronze sculptures are displayed in Grapevine to recognize the flight crew, firefighters and law enforcement officers that lost their lives protecting others after the attack on the Twin Towers.
The 9/11 Flight Crew Memorial was dedicated in 2008 to honor the American Airlines and United Airlines crews. The bronze sculptures include two pilots, two flight attendants and a child to represent the traveling public. The tall figures face west, and they are standing on a block of white Texas limestone. The names of the 33 flight crew members are engraved on slabs of granite surrounding the base.
The Firefighters Memorial was dedicated in 2013 to honor the 343 FDNY first responders who died that day. The bronze sculpture features a firefighter kneeling with his head bowed and a granite monolith with the names of the 343 firefighters.
The third sculpture completes the memorial and recognizes the 71 law enforcement officers and one rescue dog who also gave their lives to protect others on September 11th.
All of the beautiful memorials are a gift to the City of Grapevine by the 9/11 Memorial Foundation. Grapevine has incorporated Memorial Park into the parks system, guaranteeing perpetual care and maintaining its beauty.
