USS Arizona Memorial Gardens Now Open

The USS Arizona Memorial Gardens at Salt River honors those who were aboard the USS Arizona during the Pearl Harbor attack. Now open to the public, the Memorial Gardens are located in the Talking Stick Entertainment District and span the length and width of the USS Arizona.

Light posts representing those aboard during the attack line the Gardens. The Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community became the recipient of the boathouse relic, originally part of the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, and built the Gardens around it. The relic is the largest piece ever gifted to a tribal community.
