The Scout Centennial Plaza and Fishing Pond is a monument marking 100 years of Scouting in America. It is the nation’s only permanent monument honoring the centennial. It was the 2012 Community Chest Project of the Year.
The architecture of the Plaza, includes a monument containing three graphic panels illustrating the life cycle of Scouts, and also contains time capsules to be opened on the 125th, 150th, and 200th anniversaries of the Plaza’s dedication.
Situated at the edge of a one-acre fishing pond in Graham Park, the monument and Plaza are open to the public and designed to offer a site where Boy and Girl Scouts can meet, plan, and carry out community service activities in the tradition of duty which has remained central to the Scout movement. Three acres adjacent to the Plaza are reserved as an environmental area for both current and future Scouts, as well as local residents, to care for and enjoy.
