Renovations at Iowa Firefighters Memorial

With the 25th Anniversary of the Iowa Firefighters Memorial quickly approaching on June 9, the City of Coralville is going to do some renovations on the Visitors Center at the site. They will be installing new porcelain tile, adding lighting to the display cases, and putting in new interior doors. On the outside, the original concrete benches have slowly deteriorated or been damaged so they are installing new, larger bench pads and new black strap benches to match the benches along the interior walkways. The brick memorial walkway is also being extended to the south.
In order to accomplish these projects, the Iowa Firefighters Memorial Visitors Center will be closed May 15 through June 7. The memorial grounds will remain open to the public during this time.
