Patriot Field Memorial Park was built and dedicated in 2016. The nearly two acre park with nine flag poles, walking paths and memorial wall is a tribute to the veterans of Bingham County. The park is located at 355 North Ash in Blackfoot, Idaho. Patriot Field was created to be a place of reflection, an inspiration for freedom, and a legacy for future generations.
