USS Arizona Memorial Gardens at Salt River
The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community is proud to share with you, the USS Arizona Memorial Gardens at Salt River.
Located east of Pima Road, between Great Wolf Lodge Arizona and Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, the Memorial Gardens is a 5 acre development that features a piece of the original boathouse of the USS Arizona that sank at Pearl Harbor in 1941. The Gardens is free and open to public from dawn to dusk.
The USS Arizona Memorial Gardens at Salt River honors the brave US forces who were aboard the USS Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. As a nation, we are forever indebted to those who serve and give their lives for our freedom and we are proud to honor them and share their stories in these gardens.
A PLACE TO REFLECT AND PAY RESPECT
The Relic Room features a video that shares the journey of development with guests, copies of hand drawn boat design documents and segments of the crates that carried the relic piece from Hawaii to California. The Room can be opened for special events and groups. Please call 480.362.2700 to schedule your relic room viewing.
