With its rich mil­i­tary her­itage, Fayet­teville is the per­fect place to house the North Car­olina Vet­er­ans Park, the first state park ded­i­cated to mil­i­tary vet­er­ans – young and old, living or deceased, from all branches of the Armed Ser­vices: Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. The city’s beau­ti­fully revi­tal­ized his­toric down­town area is a fit­ting loca­tion, given the spirit of renewal embod­ied in the park.

The pri­mary theme of the North Car­olina Vet­er­ans Park (NCVP) is a Veteran’s Jour­ney: life before, during, and after ser­vice”. The sec­ondary theme is rebirth and heal­ing. This park rep­re­sents rede­vel­op­ment of an under­uti­lized and envi­ron­men­tally chal­lenged site, and is an oppor­tu­nity to be a key revi­tal­iza­tion com­po­nent for down­town Fayet­teville. The goal was to create a a 21st Cen­tury park that was designed for reflec­tion and cel­e­bra­tion with bold, unique, and cap­ti­vat­ing exhibits. Today the park is a place where vet­er­ans can gather and where every vis­i­tor can share the moving trib­ute of a grate­ful state, hon­or­ing those to whom our nation owes its free­dom. The park

The park incor­po­rates many nat­ural and archi­tec­tural ele­ments — con­sist­ing of a vis­i­tors’ center, 7 water fea­tures, walk­ing paths, and public art includ­ing the Oath of Ser­vice Wall. The ground­break­ing cer­e­mony was held on July 4, 2011 to offi­cially open the park and to com­mem­o­rate vet­er­ans from all branches of the mil­i­tary. Over 3000 people were present for the cer­e­mony includ­ing elected offi­cials, com­mu­nity lead­ers, mil­i­tary per­son­nel and count­less vet­er­ans.

This project fea­tures the Selux Ritorno, pro­vid­ing the per­fect bal­ance of per­for­mance and ele­gance, allow­ing for har­mo­nious park light­ing. Selux is proud to be a part of this National land­mark.

  • Ritorno by Selux uses indirect lighting to produce uniform, shadow-free distributions while creating a comfortable ambiance. Uniquely-designed shades on Ritorno, help block light from off-site glare. Use Ritorno individually on a pole or wall mount, or combine light engine and shades into unique configurations. The Ritorno LED retrofit kit can replace less energy-efficient modules without the need for complete new fixtures.
