USS Arizona Memorial Gardens
Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, Arizona
The Salt River Pima- Maricopa Indian Community’s USS Arizona Memorial honors the brave individuals aboard the USS Arizona on December 7, 1941 during the attack on Pearl Harbor. There are over 1,500 Commemorative Columns, each representing a valiant sailor or marine aboard the ship that day. The Commemorative Columns outline a to-scale perimeter of the USS Arizona whose mass extends across the street to the north and into the lake on the south. The site includes a contemplative Memorial Garden and amphitheater area with a layout based off the ship’s vertical mast as well as a showcase of The Boat House relic of the USS Arizona.
