Mattamy Homes Breaks Ground on Park to Honor Veterans 

groundbreaking of new park to honor veterans and first responders

Mattamy Homes has joined forces with the City of Port St. Lucie to honor veterans and first responders with a new park dubbed Stars and Stripes Park at Tradition—which broke ground on Thursday, April 25. 

Set to open in early 2025, the park is a brilliant mix of green spaces, scenic ponds and themed art installations. The park will be anchored by a magnificent waving flag and towering star sculptures with symbols of service and poignant quotes from veterans, first responders, and medical personnel.

Joseph O’Connell, the artistic vision behind the park, interviewed nearly 30 military veterans, fire and police officers, and front-line nurses to collect the quotes—which will be incorporated into the park’s design. The 100-plus quotes share a similar message—service of all types is made up of sacrifice, hardship, teamwork, and hard-won wisdom. The messages help us deepen our understanding of patriotism.
