Strangely enough the Google map Rob mentions does seem to give the same kink in the tree tops! Can they be the same?

The park was opened in 1921, of woodland and fields. In 1927 it became the memorial to soldiers of WWI. My dad was present as one who had taken part, he and scores of veterans had been pressing for some years for such. At the time he heard it would be opened, he heard he had another son - me! So he was highly delighted. PS. I did several carnivals from it, played football and tennis several times in it, marched in uniform, and finally did a marathon from it. Yes, I think the memorial and I have some attachment.
