  • What a fitting memorial to the fallen. A beautiful monument surrounded by smaller individual memorials, each paying tribute to one of the many services who gave so much. The park is tranquil and beautifully kept with views across Fremantle to the ocean. There are also a couple of benches where you can sit and reflect.
  • Beautiful Park and Tribute to All the Many Who Gave Their Lives In Wartime. Spectacular views for sunset gatherings, nice plush lawns and view across the city to the west. Grab a picnic and enjoy.
