Completed in 2004 and visible from Flagler Drive, is the Martin Luther King Jr. Landmark MemorialMLK Memorial WPB Jan. 2014 034 commemorating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. At the center is a large bronze sculpture of Dr. King holding the Holy Bible with cascading water on a curved granite wall behind him. On the wall as well as behind it are several quotes of people and events from Dr. King’s life and the civil rights movement. Very well done, one of the best in Palm Beach County and not to be missed!
