Dedicated in April 2000 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the U.S. Submarine Fleet, the proudly named “Deterrent Park" offers a place for learning, quiet contemplation and a natural location for honoring our shipmates on distinguished occasions.

The park is located on Naval Submarine Base Kitsap, Bangor, centrally located near Submarine Group NINE headquarters, TRIDENT Training Facility and the Off-Crew Administration Building.

The Centerpiece of the park is a full scale replica of an FBM submarine topside with the USS WOODROW WILSON (SSBN 624) sail and upper rudder. Additional features include the Forty-One For Freedom Memorial, describing Submarine Force history, and a ceremonial area.
