The Middletown WTC Memorial Gardens are located next to the Middletown Arts Center, 36 Church Street near the Middletown Train Station. The memorial features a landscaped walking path with individual memorials for each of our 37 residents lost. The Gardens are open daily from dawn to dusk.
The Middletown WTC Memorial Gardens were developed by the Middletown WTC Memorial Committee, a non-profit group consisting of family members and interested residents. The group, chaired by former Mayor Patrick W. Parkinson, came together shortly after the tragedy to create a lasting tribute to those who were lost as a result of the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001.
The 20th Anniversary of 9/11: September 11, 2021
As we approach the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the Middletown WTC Memorial Gardens Fund Committee is raising funds to add a fountain called “The Rise of Hope” that will be erected near the end of the memorial pathway, giving a quiet space to reflect.
They also plan to install two additional monuments that will be dedicated to the heroism and patriotism of our military and first responders, as well as memorialize our first responders lost from 9/11 illnesses.
Please help honor the family, friends, and neighbors we lost on 9/11 by making a contribution.
