Veterans Memorial Park is a passive park with 96.5 acres of rolling hills, grassy picnic areas, a large pavilion, a community recreation building and an art gallery coordinated by the neighboring Mission College Arts Department. Veterans Memorial Park rests on the grounds of the original site of the Veterans Hospital built in the 1940s but severely damaged in the 1971 Sylmar Earthquake. In 1972, the Federal Government transferred ownership of the property to the County and after much demolition and rebuilding, Veterans Memorial Park was dedicated on February 9, 1979
