The Macclesfield ANZAC Memorial Gardens was established on the 1st of March 2015 to commemorate the local men and women who served Australia in times of war. The two acres of Memorial Gardens are located on the corner of Walker Street & Strathalbyn Road, Macclesfield, in South Australia.
An Avenue of Honour was planted in the Macclesfield War Memorial Recreation Ground in 1951 and in 2009 there were plans to refurbish the Avenue but it was decided they needed to plant more trees than the existing space would allow. The Mount Barker District Council donated two acres of land at the entrance to the Macclesfield War Memorial Recreation Ground and it was planted with a large native garden with a “meandering walking trail that has the names of hundreds of local people inscribed in the paved surface, covering periods of service from the earliest days of the South Australian colony up to the present day” (Macclesfield ANZAC Memorial Garden website).
