9/11 Memorial Park - Info plaque and cactus.

9/11 Memorial - Beam

Stopped by this park while visiting the other unique places throughout Gila Bend. This is a very nice memorial and is a great place to reflect on the terrorist attacks in the US. As an added bonus, they have a live cactus that is one of the tallest I've ever seen in person.

Beam from the Twin Towers.

9/11 Memorial - Beam

Very subtly powerful. Quite humbling to be so close to such an iconic relic. According to the Chamber of Commerce: "Gila Bend is one of a few Arizona cities that was granted a metal beam section salvaged from the New York Twin Towers Ground Zero site following the 9-11 attack in 2001." On Pima street next to historic Stout hotel.
