San Ramon heroes who dedicated their lives to this country are honored at Memorial Park. On September 11th, 2001, Thomas Edward Burnett Jr. (1963-2001) assisted in preventing terrorists from crashing their plane into their fourth target. Kyle D. Crowley (1985-2004) died while serving in the Iraq War. It's a lovely memorial and tribute to a couple of San Ramon locals.

In terms of the park itself, it's a good-sized one with a little bit of everything. It's tucked away on a hill west of the I-680 freeway, just off the Bollinger Canyon Road exit. Memorial Park is not only one of San Ramon's biggest parks, but it is also one of its most admired. The park was initially supposed to be named Alta Mesa Park, but the City Council agreed to rename it Memorial Park in honor of San Ramon resident Tom Burnett and the other victims of Flight 93 who died in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

On September 11, 2002, the park was dedicated, and a commemorative plaque was installed at the base of a flagpole at the park's cornerstone. A grove of memorial trees has been planted in the nearby meadow in honor of other locals who have passed away.
