PatriotsPartWTCBeamPatriots Park was created by the Leadership Sarasota County Class of 2002 to remember those who perished on 9/11, as well as the heroes who saved other lives that day, and those who have made sacrifices in the name of freedom in all wars. The park is located on U.S. 41, just north of the intersection of U.S. 41 Bypass North and U.S. 41 Business. It is inside city limits but is maintained by Sarasota County. Events commemorating Veterans Day and Memorial Day are held there for the public.

A paved courtyard is dedicated to veterans of world wars, police, firefighters, the fallen of 9/11 and heroes everywhere. The memorial includes a 2-ton steel beam from the World Trade Center wreckage and a piece of rubble from the attack on the Pentagon. The park also has a flag display, restrooms and picnic tables.
