On September 11, 2001, many came to this site to witness the horrific tragedy just a few miles away in Lower Manhattan, and, for days afterward, they continued to come to view the smoke spiraling up from the site, most still in shock, not believing what they were seeing. From their beginning, the World Trade Center Towers dominated the view from here. Through the years, many have come to visit this site and enjoy the view. Now, the towers no longer in view, we remember a loved one, a relative, a friend, a neighbor, a coworker, an aquaintance we lost that day. At the same time, we still picture them in our mind, and while we do, we also remember where we were when tragedy struck and how our lives changed?forever.

On July 22, 2002, the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders charged a committee of interested citizens with the task of designing and constructing a memorial to the 147 citizens of Monmouth County lost on that tragic day. The Monmouth County 9/11 Memorial Committee along with the Friends of The Monmouth County Park System completed this task three years later. On September 11, 2005, the memorial was officially dedicated.

This plaque recognizes not only the major contributors listed below whose generosity helped make this memorial a reality, but also the hundreds of donors who contributed the best way they could. Among them are the thousands of children from 33 schools in Monmouth county who donated their pennies, nickles, dimes, and dollars.
