For years, the lawn outside the Eastport fire station has been crisscrossed with dirt footpaths worn by pedestrians who cut through the property between nearby residential neighborhoods and a commercial district. Capt. Dallas Lister, a 26-year veteran of the Annapolis Fire Department, has pondered what could be done to accommodate that foot traffic and spruce up the patch of grass. In 2020, Lister came up with the idea for a memorial park to honor three fallen members of the fire department and other community heroes.
