The Buffalo Soldier Memorial was completed in 2000, after ten years of fundraising raised over $400,000. This park celebrates the relationship between the 8th and 9th Buffalo Soldier units that were stationed at Fort Riley and the city of Junction City. This park is located close to the Buffalo Soldiers old quarters and is a site where many of their children played in the early 20th Century. This is an awe-inspiring site and a must-see for any history lover or children that enjoy playing on swings and slides.
