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.

What an eye opener Brother Joybert. I can still remember the old original bird aviary which sadly fizzled out to 'emptiness'. Thank you for sharing a delightful area with us. I hope it will be well maintained for the future. Wave
