— The state budget approved on Tuesday provides $15 million to the city of Fayetteville for a state veteran's park.

The 15-acre park, which will honor the state’s veterans of all armed forces, would be built at Rowan Street and Bragg Boulevard as part of downtown's new northwest gateway.

The master plan calls for a reflecting pond, a visitor center, formal gardens and a sundial with dates of significant military actions.

Construction of the park will begin in around 2010.
