Florida - West Palm Beach: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Landmark Memorial
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Landmark Memorial, in Currie Park, or Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Park, along North Flagler Drive next to Lake Worth in West Palm Beach, was completed in 2004. The park is the largest of its type in Florida and one of the largest memorials commemorating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. anywhere in the Southern United States. The park contains numerous plaques and photos commemorating Dr. King's life, family and speeches, interspersed with highlights of the civil rights movement. The highlights are a bronze sculpture of Dr. King backdropped by cascading water on a granite wall and the display of flats, representing areas of great influence to King's life, waving over the intracoastal.
