Victory Memorial Parkway travels north from Theodore Wirth Parkway and Lowry Ave. to 45th Ave. N then east to Humboldt Ave. N and the entrance to Webber Park.
The 2.8 mile parkway was established as a monument to the bravery and sacrifices of people from Hennepin County who lost their lives in World War I. It is lined by stately hackberry and elm trees planted for each of the 568 Hennepin County soldiers who died. Markers are installed with the name, rank and company of each soldier. A memorial wall lists the names of the fallen military personnel, and gardens are planted near the plaza.
