Atlantic City


New Jersey

Monuments & Memorials

These jewels include a one-of-a-kind tribute honoring the long journey of African Americans towards civil rights and an eternal flame dedicated to New Jerseyans who fought and gave their lives in the Korean War.

The Civil Rights Garden
One of Atlantic City’s most breathtaking spots, The Civil Rights Garden is located a block off the Boardwalk at Pacific Avenue and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
This sanctuary of nature commemorates the bloody marches toward freedom from slavery and respect for the rights of every human being. A new must-see of Atlantic City attractions, the garden symbolizes the passion of the human spirit. Designed by nationally renowned artist Larry Kirkland of Washington, D.C., the garden features a brick path through a garden of seasonal plants, flowers and gingko trees. Eleven black African granite columns are etched with quotes from great Americans. The central column features an upraised hand and a large, bronze bell hovering over a reflecting pool.

The New Jersey Korean War Memorial
another famous memorial on the East Coast, is located in Brighton Park where Park Place meets the Boardwalk. The back wall of the Memorial, beneath an eternal flame, is engraved with the names of the 822 New Jerseyans who were killed or are still missing in action.
