The memorial sits in a grass-covered median at the intersection of Beal Street, Bryant Street, and Sunset Avenue across from City Lake. The inscribed face of the marker faces roughly southeast.
The marker sits in a small park-like area, in the center of a small circular garden with four short paved paths leading to it. The benches are located to the right and left just outside the circular area. Shade trees surround the site.
