Built in honor of the Bahamian soldiers who have lost their lives in combat, this garden stands as a solemn reminder of the cost of war. The garden is dedicated namely to the soldiers from World Wars One and Two, as well as four marines whom were killed when their boat was stuck by a Cuban missile.

The gardens are located just behind the Supreme Court and are small enough to easily walk through.
