Upgrades at Murphy Memorial Park
An article published by Newsday on March 16, 2022 describes the upgrades to the LT Michael P. Murphy Memorial Park located in Lake Ronkonkoma, NY. The improvements, which occurred last fall, included the addition of a new retaining wall to protect the Murphy monument.
The Park (formerly Lake Ronkonkoma Park) was dedicated to Murphy on what would have been his 30th birthday on May 7, 2006, and contains a black granite wall dedicated to the men lost in Operation Red Wings. The stone shown in the photo above bears the photo of Murphy and his Medal of Honor.
The Park is located less than 10 miles from the LT Michael P. Murphy Navy SEAL Museum in West Sayville, NY, scheduled to be opened to the public later this year, and is also the site of the Run Around the Lake event scheduled in June 2022.
