The Portuguese Discovery Monument is a tribute to the Portuguese navigators of the Golden Age of maritime exploration, which spanned from the early 1400’s to the late 1500’s.  ​ The Monument is the crown jewel of the Portuguese Monument Foundation, whose mission is to support Portuguese-American communities. The Park is available for use by the public and the Foundation encourages those communities to discover all that the Park has to offer!
